Progress Report Monday 27th May 2019

Dear All,

I have turned off predictive text so hopefully less grammatical errors in this report! The day started in typical bank holiday fashion with customary rain but as the day progressed the sun came out as did our visitors with today being the busiest of the holiday weekend. Again we had both the narrow gauge and miniature railways in operation as well as a steam service on the incline which proved very popular with our visitors both young and old. The miniature railway carried over one hundred passengers during the weekend. Following on from Joe's report for Sunday, work continued on the respective projects in the maintenance facility.

The Association ran a steam experience on the incline in between passenger services and we also entertained a large number of passengers celebrating a birthday on the Duffield service. 

Today's service was supported by the Association shop, station cafe, narrow and miniature railways, crossing gate keepers, Shottle signalling staff and booking hall staff and again my thanks to everyone who gave up their bank holiday to ensure we enjoyed a very successful weekend.

All the best, Tom
