Progress Friday 17th March 2017

Dear all,

Some quite unusual movements on the railway today. Firstly No.3 steamed to Duffield to convey a water tank which is used for steam loco emergency supplies.

Then, with preparations underway for this weekend's Diesel Weekend well under way, visiting Class 14 "Eric" went on a route learning run for the drivers from the East Lancs.

After this, the 33, which had been repaired by the Boffins from Burton following a sticky load regulator and blowing control air valve, also went on a test run.

Bring on the weekend!
