Progress Wednesday 9th March 2016

Hi all

Another interesting day with Henry Ellison our Barclay 0-4-0 with
EVRA's SO Coach and a brake van travelling to Shottle and return. This
trip enabled two steam drivers to be passed out and the SO be tested
for braking and riding quality. All went well
The Pway team assisted at Duffield Station removing all the spoil and
concrete into the Grampus and emptying at Shottle
The lone DMU member commenced an A exam on the Class 119.
I write this report at Wirksworth awaiting Class 33 Swordfish being
delivered from Nemesis at Burton on Trent. Although loaded the Tractor
unit failed and is awaiting spares. Could be a long night !!

All for now
