Supplementary Wednesday 16th March 2016

Dear all
Another "end of an era" event as the Wirksworth raised garden bed was removed to enlarge the circulation area at the Station and produce a space where events can be staged. The garden was created in 2003 as a measure to save on tarmac as we just couldn't afford to surface the whole area. All plants have been safely recovered and the memorial sleeper will be relocated.
The second photo is of the Grampus wagon which benefitted from the ministrations of Dan Smith and reflects great credit on his workmanship that includes a new steel floor.
The video is a quick look at today's brake testing of small trailers intended for use by Network Rail in Essex.
