Wed 12th March

Evenin' all,

Today saw a mixture of rain as well as bright periods. The Per way
team replaced a few more sleepers under the continuation of road 2 by
Cemetery lane, and a pair of rails were rolled back into place so that
the road can be used again. A plan to get some more sleeper quality
sleepers from further up the line this afternoon was scuppered due to
unforseen circumstances. However some ballast regulating tookplace in
the Jebbs Lane area. Measurements were taken for a replacement rail as
well as other minor tasks.

The Landrover continued to get some TLC and some replacement parts
fitted and long rusted bits had an application of Easing Oil.

Some alterations to the services in the GLV were discussed and a plan
was formulated. This Buffet Car was kept at full stretch all over the
weekend, and some ammendments are required.

A passing HMRI turned up, to take a first look at the Narrow Gauge
line and also popped in for a chat - you never know when they are
about!

Admin work was carried out, following my visit to the Rail exhibition
at the NEC yesterday, with some inputing of data. Other members have
been today and some are going there tomorrow.

More training took place with the new equipment in the Booking Halll,
now all we have to do is get the price which is marked on items to
match those displayed on the till!

Tomorrow sees a whole line test of a new vehicle for another new
customer, Activity will be limited to the yard or own transport.

Phil
