These three pictures taken on 15th January will be the last of Crich until May. I had intended to get a few shots of the Outside Works team but it had rained all morning and they had been re-deployed indoors. So here is a general view with no one in sight and then pictures of the Sweet Shop and Rita's Cafe.
Following the discussion which developed in the comments to the post about "Best in Amber Valley" Christoph Heuer has suggested to start a forum for TMS members and staff. The forum is to follow along the lines of similar forums of other preservation societies in the UK, namely the Severn Valley Railway Association (forum.svra.org.uk). Christoph has set up a forum which will initially have the address tmscrich.iphpbb.com. If you like the idea, please visit and register, use the forum and invite others who may be interested but do not know about the forum. Christoph has already started some threads to give you an idea what can happen in this forum. He would like to point out that it is a matter of "use it or lose it". This forum is a private initiative and not directly connected to or endorsed by the TMS or any of the societies' officers.
So that's all for now from me except to say that I intend to publish some transport pictures of Australia and New Zealand and perhaps even air conditioned bus shelters in Dubai provided the technology works. Please click on the link.
We have now arrived in Dubai.
