Progress Sunday 12th February 2017

Dear all,

The second day of the season was equally as cold, damp and miserable as the first with heavy snow in Wirksworth first thing. Having said that, it didn't seem to matter as we enjoyed even more passenger than yesterday including ones booked in to our Valentines Experience. The Experience, which was sold out, included a fizzy ride on the train followed by a three course meal in the Pullman. Despite it being hard work, everybody really enjoyed it and many friends were made.

Down the yard, the coaching stock exams continued and Faraday had one of the rods dropped off to inspect the condition of the axle boxes. Needless to say they hadn't been opened for a long time!

Today's pic is of the Booking Office at Duffield in full swing.
