Progress Wednesday 11th January 2016

Dear all,

The howling gale rapidly flung the tumbleweed around Wirksworth today! The Maintenance Team (or man as one half has man flu) continued working on Iris whilst John popped over to continue his repainting work in the cab of 108 53599.

The PW team were down the line continuing with the platform at Shottle and also sorting timbers out on the southern section of line.

I am delighted to announce that we have been awarded £5,000 from the Aviva Community Fund to aid with the return to service of the former Severn Tunnel Bubble Car for the PW team. It'll be a great help to know that the money is there as and when it is needed. Thank you to all who registered on their site and voted for us.

Leigh
