Update from Saturday 16th July. By Jon Tooke.
On Saturday we had the AGM and a council meeting. A full report on the AGM will appear in the next issue
of the DEPG magazine sent to all group members which is currently being worked on.
Today we used the class 47 which went LE from DEPG WN to BL early in the morning. Our activities were
curtailed and the normal working diagrams were revised due to an incoming steam Charter off the main
line. We only had one 'round trip but the long layover at MD at lunchtime allowed me to take a few snaps
of the charter. To allow the charter to arrive at the main platform at MD and because the bay platform was
also occupied by a steam hauled service train, we had stable the 47 and the coaches on the loco road
which is very unusual and worthy of a snap or two!
