Request for an organ in Ripley, Derbyshire, 11th & 12th July 2015:

Our Patrons Weekend for this year will be the 11th & 12th July at the Midland Railway Centre, Ripley, Derbyshire ( I realise that these dates clash with Rempstone Steam Rally).

However the weekend will be known as the 1960's weekend and the railway traffic at the Centre will reflect that era.

The Duchess of Sutherland will be running, hauling passenger trains. The coaches she will be hauling will include two special saloons, firstly an Inspection Saloon used by Her Majesty The Queen and secondly a saloon used by Winston Churchill during the Second World War. These coaches will be for the exclusive use of our friends and supporters, including any of your members.

Whilst as a registered charity ( and our event is a fund raiser) we would not be ably to pay any of your members, they will be able to enjoy travel on the railway free of charge both days.

There will be a limited number of footplate rides on the Duchess of Sutherland which may also be available to them.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Leslie E.Truswell
