Progress Sunday 28th October 2018

Dear all,

That's it now! The clocks have changed and we're heading into the winter! Today was the last regular Sunday service of the season to Duffield, with services in November running between Wirksworth and Shottle only using a top and tail steam/diesel combination. It wasn't too bad today with the chilly but sunny weather bringing in a steady number. In addition, a walk of the town organised by the newly reopened Wirksworth Heritage Centre added some interest. The Station Café had a reasonable day with a small group coming in for afternoon tea.

Down the yard, the Maintenance Facility was shunted to allow repairs to take place to the corridor end on Class 108 53599 and also to change the vehicle on the pit for maintenance. Work continued on TSO 4440 too.
