It is with deep sorry and regret that we have to announce the passing of two members. Arthur Muskett, who could always have been found in the carriage shed working on some new project, and Adam Hamilton, a former BCDR fireman who lately came to prominence in the BBC1 documentary ‘Raising Steam’. Both had been unwell for some time. Our deepest sympathies from all at the DCDR to their families.
