Progress Monday 29th May 2017

Dear all,

The weather didn't turn out to be too bad apart from just as the last train was boarding, where everybody got drenched. In all though, not a bad Bank Holiday Monday with many happy visitors. The first train from Duffield had 151 passengers on board and it stayed happily busy all day. Even the last train back took some creativity to make sure everybody had a seat. Ruffle the Rail Dog was in attendance with a stall on Platform 2 and the story books are now for sale in the Booking Office shop at Wirksworth. All activities today were supported by the buffet, model railway as well as the narrow gauge.

Down the yard, some fuelling was done and sorting out of the stores. 

Diesel loco haulage tomorrow and we're looking forward to the first Afternoon Tea train of the season.
