Another beautifully sunny day in Wirksworth with the trains happily well loaded all day. We hosted pre-booked Mother's Day guests today who had a ride down the line with a fizz reception from Eric, followed by an Afternoon Tea in the Pullman. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves so thank you to the Catering Dept for their efforts.
Down the yard, work continued stripping out the old interior of the RF kitchen car. Further work was done on Iris after the fitting of the vacuum cylinder yesterday. This fault seems to be finally rectified and today they spent time fine tuning the set up on the vehicle including throttle motors and engine governors for smooth running. Hopefully she'll be out on passenger duties again soon after a lengthy spell in the sidings.
