13/09/14 - DERBY ETCHES PARK OPEN DAY
a open day to celebrate 175 years of the railway in derby
the main attraction for me was to have been the appearance of 4f 0-6-0 43924 built at derby in 1920 and midland compound 4-4-0 1000 also built in derby in 1902 together with later built diesels to demonstrate the long history of locomotive building in the city
alas on arrival it became clear the was no steam presence at all and no explanation either !!
