When the visitors had departed. Things like this wonderful day couldn’t happen without a lot of planning, preparation and on the day sheer hard work, despite which all the volunteers themselves enjoyed the day and continued smiling and helping all who attended to enjoy their time here too, which of course was the object of the whole exercise. When the crowds had gone, it was chance for the volunteers to get together. Here are some of those to be thanked for a job well done. Thanks to Stuart Stockwell for his permission to use the picture, taken with the use of his camera.
Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of DVLR.

At the tracks.
At right, a train passing the trolley demonstration area, where the DVLR Pump Trolley and the Wickham Trolley were out for the public to see in action.
Below, a narrower track. The 5 inch track gauge scale model which was carrying passengers throughout the day.
A short goods train was run. A nostalgic reminder  of old times goods trains for some. For the younger ones, a chance to look what things were like in the “old days.”
Driver for a Fiver There were a number of places available in the Driver for Fiver Event. For five pounds, you get to drive a loco. DVLR’s Trevor (in the left picture) is seen here training a rookie as the train was moving along the track.
A model railways exhibition was held in one of the halls at Murton Park.
To the right of the Skipwith sign (above) is a long model of the layout of the old DVLR at the Skipwith Station area. Above right is a gif movie of a train moving past the station: A superb re-creation to look back in time.
Below right, a gallery of pictures and information about Derwent Valley Light Railway.
Left and above left, more engines, this time, stationary engines, being demonstrated by their owners, in Murton Park grounds near the Blackberry Line Welcome Sign.
