Progress Tuesday 28th March 2017

Dear all,

The final operating day of March saw reasonable passenger numbers for the time of year and it was great to see Iris back out in service for the first time in quite a while (officially May last year)!

Down the yard, the PW team were laying track into the new shed extension which will allow the concrete to be laid maybe next week.

I have to apologise because Peter gave me the steam team's progress but I have left it in the office!

Yesterday we took delivery of a cute little yard shunter. It is a 170hp Thomas Hill Class 188c called "Tom" and is going to be a great help in shunting Wirksworth Yard, reducing the need to use a big loco.
