    Always good to have more covered accommodation. What is the DfT involvement in the facility?

    The shed extension is being built as a major part of the DfT grant project, I'm not sure if they are paying for all of it as the floor has been built to a very high specification to support carriage lifting jacks.

    Meanwhile we have just had a very successful Easter weekend; earnings are around double those at Easter 2016 - a slightly later date helps but even so it is a very good omen for the visit of 47406 over the Summer.

    East Midlands Trains Second Generation Class 153 is to visit Wirksworth for the Multiple Memories Railcar Gala on 13th/14th May. There will be a short naming ceremony on the Saturday morning at Wirksworth Station as the unit is named "Ecclesbourne Valley Railway 150 Years" to commemorate our celebratory year, before it operates services through the weekend alongside our award winning fleet of First Generation units.

    Trains will cross in the new loop at Shottle. For further details and timetable, please see the EVR website.

    I'll be heading over when the jinty arrives. Haven't been over since the lanks and Yorks visited the other year. Looking forward to seeing a few changes down at the railway.
