Progress Thursday 20th July 2017

Dear all,

A very wet start to the day but it brightened up later. Our DMU service was upgraded to a 3 car today due to a large party who also enjoyed a hot meal in the Pullman.

Down the yard, Tom the shunter had some routine maintenance and an air leak sorted out and the new shed was swept and kept looking good.

The PW team unloaded lots of sleepers that they had taken out of the line at Wirksworth so they can be sold. Some already have been! Then the works train was tripped to Shottle before the services started. They then returned to Wirksworth by road and repaired the main gate as well as cleaned, adjusted and greased the Wash Green Ground Frame.
