Progress Report Saturday 24th November 2018

The penultimate Shottle Steam Special service today continued to see a steady growth in visitor number with a large group of walkers turning up to join the first service. The Wirksworth booking hall was kept busy with Santa bookings throughout the day. The 15.00 train was turned into 'Hogwarts' as a large birthday party with a wizards theme enjoyed a trip along the valley. 

At Wirksworth station work continued on the new station building and in the training room Neil F-L continued to update volunteer records. John Rhead was also in attendance assessing Guard's continuing competence and Ron could also be found working on the miniature railway extension.

Today's service was supported by the EVRA shop and Station Cafe.

A most enjoyable day.

All the best, Tom
