Progress Saturday 14th July 2018

Dear all,

Back to the glorious sunny and warm weather for day 1 of our Classic Transport Weekend where an assortment of classic road vehicles congregate at Wirksworth Station. There were classic trains too in the form of both our 1958 Class 101 DMU and the 1926 Jinty with 1950s Mark 1 coaches. All was smooth and went well with lots of happy people, including a coach party from Wales.

Down the yard, the Class 73 had work to reconstruct the air frame and the red 08 (605) was having an underneath traction motor exam.

These events take a lot of staff to put on so thank you to all of those who helped. Antiques in the Streets alongside our event tomorrow for anybody that is interested!

Leigh
