Saturday 29th March 2008

Dear all
What a foul day with little to lift the spirits. A small team crewed the Idridgehay service and entertained a few visitors and a "Day with a Driver" guest - their fortitude in the adverse weather is to be commended. Also of special mention is Tony Chave who stepped into the vacant position of Buffet Car Attendant at the last moment ensure this necessary facility was available. The EVRA shop was open for business and there was a very useful aluminium scrap drive.
Much discussion of the requirements of HMRI for the narrow gauge operation and a huddle concerning the progress on Wee Yorkie's boiler.
The Booking Hall functioned well as Harry Bodkin and I got to grips with the new till and struck a balance at the end of the day.
