Progress Sunday 16th April 2017

Dear all,

A day which was forecast to be wet and horrible turned out to be not too bad here on the railway with only the odd light shower. Today was slightly down on yesterday but that is to be expected judging on the patterns of previous Easter weekends, however, it is still pleasing to know that it is around 100% up on last Easter Sunday. Once again the circus was proving popular at Wirksworth along with the egg hunt.

Down the yard, the vacuum cylinder for 55005 which has been overhauled by a contractor was returned to the vehicle. The brake rigging needs connecting tomorrow before a test can be done.
