Progress Friday 17th May 2019

Dear all,

Generally quiet at Wirksworth today with Lewis and Richard entertaining four Drive a Diesel experience guests firstly trying their hand at a DMU in the form of W55006 before taking to 31601 in the afternoon. Incidentally the latter being back in traffic after one of the doors was returned following refurbishment.

Down the shed work continued on the Fitness to Run for the recently arrived Mark 1 coach, in preparation for it to debut at the Steam in the Valley event. Focus at the moment is on the axle boxes and also sealing some leaking windows.
