Progress Saturday 28th July 2018

Dear all,

The final Saturday of July actually saw rain - shock, horror. Not to worry though, passenger numbers were still encouraging and it was nice to see the Jinty back out on the trains. No doubt they were pleased it was cooler too!

Down the yard, work continued on the Class 73 with the windows being put back in. TSO 4440 had welding work now it has been put into the Maintenance Facility. The LMSCA were also working in the TO and the team furthered The Duke in the shed. I'm sure Tim will fill you in more on this.

This evening saw a private Wedding Anniversary DMU charter for a couple from Wirksworth and 60 of their guests. It featured fish and chips at Duffield and the sun finally came out for this!
