Progress Thursday 20th February 2020

Dear all,

Well the elements continue to batter us but it didn't deter the passengers, we've had two days of really pleasing numbers on the train for the time of year despite the rain. In fact we even had a smidgeon of snow last thing to top it off.

The PW have been at Wirksworth this week with services running sorting things out for their upcoming projects. S&T have done two days this week with them doing their routine level crossing inspections and ground frame adjustments.

The Maintenance Team have finished off the final DMU exam which was E51505 and released that to traffic. They've also worked through some work arising on W51073 too. It'll be on to coaching stock next week.

Good progress has been made on the new toilet block at Wirksworth. The Gents now has proper cubicles. There are some finishing off jobs, like more boxing, bits in the urinals and also the board edging to do but its looking very nice (for a 'public' loo).
