Progress Saturday 3rd June 2017

Dear all,

Sunny weather brought out the visitors today as our second Saturday of steam services on Duffield and Ravenstor lines enjoyed good loadings. Following some attention by the DST to a piston gland the visiting 'Jinty' performed faultlessly. Down the yard the LMSCA and the Duke's restoration team worked on their respective projects. Today's service was supported by the EVRA shop, Model Railway and the Pullman Buffet. Incidentally, keep a look out for some new products being sold in our station shops next week. These include 'Chuffin' Charlie' (our very own locally made Belgian chocolate steam loco) and 'Winston the Wyvern' (a delicious chocolate dragon) not to mention IRIS Pale Ale being offered for sale in our on train buffet!

All the best,
