Thursday 13th March 2008

Dear all
 
A much more settled day with some sunshine. We welcomed a new customer from north of the border and used our "new" Landrover as escort vehicle. Work continued on the EVRA shop and Information Centre together with the ever extending narrow gauge. Wee Yorkie seems to be benefiting from a lot of energy and initial results from the boiler examination were assessed. Midland Railway rail chairs released by our work at Cemetery Lane had preparation work to make them presentable for sale in the EVRA shop and the Logging Dept. bagged up sticks for sale.
 
During a rest period the Landrover had its locks tended to and ballast fettling made its necessary slow progress along Bournebrook Avenue. The VCT continued their work in the Jebbs Lane area encompassing a tree that had split in the recent high winds.
 
The Booking Hall received a few visitors and fielded the usual phone calls. A late booking was taken for paying guests tomorrow helping us to gradually recover our financial equilibrium.
 
All in all a satisfactory day.
 
Regards
 
Martin
