I fairly average day on the trains today but not surprising given the heat. It topped 33 degrees at Wirksworth Station this afternoon.
Nevertheless some groups continued despite the heat. It was good to hear that Henry Ellison passed it's internal boiler test and should hopefully, pending a steam test, be back in service after a while out of action.
The S&T department were down at Shottle with further work taking place on Oddingley box. The bottom timbers are being cut out as they are rotten and need replacing.
