    The EVR's diesel weekend on March 17th and 18th 2018 will feature the first visit of a Class 42 "Warship" D832 "Onslaught" from the East Lancashire Railway! The event will also feature 33103 "Swordfish" after a repaint back into BR Blue which is currently ongoing in the EVR sheds and will be completed for the event, it should emerge gleaming in the next few weeks! 31206 will also feature after recently having had some winter maintenance completed. Should be a cracking weekend with an intensive timetable.

    Work continues in the EVR sheds at Wirksworth with the repaint of 33103 "Swordfish" , many hours have been spent filling and sanding the bodyside and over half of it is now in undercoat, the final preparation of the west side has been completed and patch primed, the north cab is the last area to recieve body filler.
