Progress Report Saturday 24th June 2017


Dear All,

The weather was kind today at Derbyshire's favourite branch line with the sun managing to break through on occasions. A fairly busy Duffield service today and the Jinty performed Flawlessly. I don't know enough about coal and the best coal to use or what type of fire to build but a big thank you to today's GCR crew, ably piloted by JHT,  who ensured the train arrived and departed on time. The Ravenstor steam service was busy throughout the day.

Down the yard the DMU team could be found working on the Derby Lightweight and Class 119. Worked continued on the EVRA SK and the Duke had a big end machined by Simon. (video on Facebook page). The LMSCA were also in restoration mode. The Miniature gauge team were in attendance making ready for next weekend's grand opening. Today's service was supported by the EVRA Shop, Pullman Buffet and Booking Hall staff.

All the best, Tom
