Progress Wednesday 24th May 2017
A gorgeously sunny and warm day which saw us host a charter for a local luncheon club. They enjoyed a charter DMU service to Duffield, followed by a hot meal in the Pullman. My thanks to everyone involved in this. It takes a lot of hard work and preparation to serve 40 hot meals to a top quality standard. The guests were very happy.
Following this, puffing could be heard as Class 3F Jinty 47406 made her first and only test run to Duffield ahead of services starting at the weekend. Everything went smoothly and the locomotive is very at home on the line.
