Today was the Funeral of our colleague John Evans, our Training and Safety Manager, who sadly died suddenly on Thursday 15th September. The service held at Chesterfield Crematorium was attended by family, friends and many of his railway colleagues and uniformed railway personnel provided a Guard of Honour at the crematorium entrance. A wake was held at the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway with 2 special trains running, a DMU ran between Wirksworth and Shottle and a Steam Engine ran on the incline. A collection held raised £330, may I ask for suggestions of how this money would be best spent to commemorate John’s work at the railway.
