History of the Dining Car 'Diana'
A legacy left by Diana Clementson. A respected fireman sadly passed away in 2014 following a long battle with cancer. Diana is someone who would not hide from the duties of an operational railway. Previously volunteering at the Llangollen Railway before coming to Churnet Valley Railway. "Lady Di" as she became known had an infectious smile and left a lasting impression on everyone she met. Upon her passing she left a substantial amount of money to the Railway which was used in the winter maintenance in 2015-16. The coach was renamed 'Diana' in her memory.
