Progress Sunday 11th November 2018

Dear all,

The railway fell silent for two minutes at 11:00 to remember our veterans, with the scheduled departure held until 11:05. It was quite a busy train for the time of year with plenty of people enjoying the Shottle Specials operated by steam loco Henry Ellison and Class 08 G.R. Walker. We hosted the gun carriage when it wasn't involved in the Remembrance Day parade in the town.

Down in the shed welding repairs continued on the back end of Class 108 53599 with new crash pillars being introduced.

Another team installed a couple of new LED floodlights in the car park near the Mess Room and Conference Room which will certainly help during the Christmas period.
