Monday 29th October 2007

Dear all
 
Again, a day of great activity with the late running of today's customer giving us the opportunity to put some ballast down on the Wash Green to Gorsey Bank section and then dribble what was left along the stretch opposite Bournebrook Avenue. Whilst the standard gauge was being ballasted a team were also ballasting the narrow gauge with an assortment of equipment including a mini digger, dumper and fearsome wacker plate.
 
Roy(71) and Les(77) together with Chris (21?) made steady progress with the interceptor pit and we welcomed a visitor from the Aln Valley Railway who may purchase our redundant Permaquip fleet. Further preparation of the Idridgehay gate posts was undertaken.
 
The Booking Hall was kept busy with our visitors and the usual phone calls.
 
Regards
 
Martin
