Progress Thursday 28th December 2017

Dear all,

The railway was awakening today after a few days of lul for Christmas. The big event for today was the Wedding Reception of Kathy and Ian, two Wirksworth residents. They had invited all of their guests to "An Afternoon with Iris" but they didn't mention that Iris was a train! After marrying at the church up the road, they had a hot chocolate reception in our decorated marquee before boarding the train. Iris did a return journey to Duffield with the jazz band on board and fish and chips were served whilst we were at Duffield. Santa was guarding!!

This morning, wagons were sorted out by the PW team before the works train tripped to Shottle prior to the wedding.

The 3-car was readied for this weekend's service too.
