On Wednesday 13th September 2023, the Master Cutler, Dame Julie Kenny DBE DL, was thrilled to board the 07:33 Master Cutler Service operated by East Midlands Railway (EMR) from Sheffield to London.
We are honoured to have East Midlands Railway as continued Friends of The Company of Cutlers. This prestigious, specific train service holds significance as it is named after the Master Cutler. EMR uphold the longstanding tradition which grants every Master Cutler the opportunity to ride their train service – a highly valued event in their year.
The Master Cutler explained how great the experience was to ride in the Master Cutlers’ train driver’s cab. Alex, the train driver, described how to drive and operate the train as well as the important aspects of safety he follows on every journey to ensure the safety of all passengers. “It was fascinating to learn and the views from the front window of the train were spectacular – it will certainly be one of my highlights of the year.”
Thank you to the team at East Midlands Railway, George, Alex & Paul for organising this wonderful experience.
