Progress Saturday 13th July 2019

Dear all,

Another muggy day in the valley with services operated by both Class 33 "Swordfish" and Class 2MT 78018. Services were reasonably busy all day which was pleasing to see, as was the Café and Miniature Railway.

Down the yard, work continued in the construction of the Derby Lightweight toilet compartment and also the gradual rebuild of TSO 4440. The Class 73 also had a turbo oil change this afternoon.

A gang departed early doors for the seaside, well near Blackpool anyway, to collect recently acquired S&T components (sea reported as not seen, but seagulls heard so they must have been close). They were back at Wirksworth in time for a cuppa at the end of service. The hard work continues with this tomorrow.
