Monday 28th April 2008

Dear all
A day of some excitement with satisfactory negotiations concluded to block the line at Gorsey Bank a week on Wednesday for a temporary gas main and rent space in our garage for up to eight weeks.
Work on the Wash Green viewing area continued and the Booking Hall welcomed a few visitors.
Behind the scenes there was much activity on the financial front and our newly appointed Independent Safety Officer visited to discuss his remit. This new post is to be held by Peter Taylor, the last Operations Manager for the Wirksworth Branch, who has a wealth of railway operating experience to pass on to us. We will see Peter visiting various aspects of our operations to give an overview of our performance, where improvements can be made and where training may be beneficial. The emphasis will be on learning from his vast experience and enjoying an independent view of our activities.
