Progress Report Tuesday 13th June 2017


Dear All,

A rather overcast day here at Derbyshire's favourite branch line. Down the yard the DST turned their skills to a leaking gauge glass on Henry Ellison which was prepared for service this weekend. As too did the Jinty with a few minor repairs being attended to. Work on Cathryn continues with replacement of missing bolts, taper pins, split pins and lubrication piping. Work on the vacuum chamber also continues. The DMU association continued with an exam on the Class 119 now that the throttle problem has been rectified. The Permanent Way were in attendance too conducting a track patrol. 

Today's afternoon tea train was hauled by loco '31206' and was fully booked with the on board staff receiving many compliments on the quality of food and the service provided. 

Today's service was supported by the EVRA shop, Model Railway and Pullman Buffet. Please don't forget you can now purchase a range of Ecclesbourne Valley Railway confectionary in the Wirksworth Booking Hall!

A very productive day.

All the best,
