Progress Thursday 9th May 2019

Dear all,

A dry start enabled a gazebo to be put up at Wirksworth ahead of a wedding reception we are hosting on Saturday. The day will mostly involve catering on the train but it will just provide a little shelter to guests in the interim if necessary. Derek and Dan were working in the BSK(K) to get all the systems working and testing everything out ready for Saturday after winter storage and works.

The PW team dodged the rain as best they could to continue ditching and crib work north of Shottle and the S&T dept carried out routine facing point lock and ground frame inspections.

Progress on the new station building was also hampered on the outside as painting in this weather isn't possible, however the walls were being plastered inside to move the project on.
