Progress Sunday 29th January 2017

Dear all,

Nearly the second month of the year already! Still damp, cold and miserable as well, with heavy rain to finish.

The weather didn't dampen spirits as we hosted Peter Watts' 50th birthday charter train. Around 50 of his relatives and friends had a ride to Duffield and back as well as warmed up with a cuppa and a retail opportunity in the Booking Office at Duffield. The train had been pre decorated with balloons and things which just added to the atmosphere. Peter, for those who don't know him, has been a volunteer driver with us now for quite few years and often enjoys helping out at Santa time. Happy birthday Peter!

Down the yard, the recently faulty vacuum cylinder on Iris was given a dose of looking at to confirm that it is, indeed, faulty. Stock was moved around to prepare for the coming weeks also.
