Progress Thursday and Friday 4th and 5th October 2018

Dear all,

Quieter now the mid week service has slowed but it does enable other works to take place. For example, yesterday saw the mini digger levelling and grading the ground for the Wirksworth Miniature Railway extension which will be excellent when it is completed.

Work continued on changing an unloader valve on DMU 50253 which completes this vehicle's exam. Work also continued on the Derby Lightweight DMU and TSO 4440 around the shed. Class 101 E51505 is also in the works with attention the toilet compartment having a makeover.
