Thursday 20th March 2008

Dear all
A dismal day with the Easter weekend not promising to be much better, but we live in hopes! Maintenance of the south Idridgehay gate was completed and further ballast fettling achieved. We don't normally mention our customers by name but we were pleased to welcome the Roger Bance to site today whose name lives with some of our track tools.
Defects in the Museum Coach lighting were investigated and a solution reached. Work continued on very Wee Yorkie and the Booking Hall acted as "mission control" and had further tweaking of the new till.
The track patrol team viewed the Wirksworth to Idridgehay section and attempted some work to unblock the drains on the "racing straight" with mixed success.
