Friday 3rd July 2009

Dear all
You may have noticed the introduction of an eight day week that includes two Tuesdays. This is to ensure we hit targets and open Duffield on time and it will help with the completion of the Olympic village that otherwise would have opened in 2013.
Today we welcomed the National Television & Film School who were working on a production for their finals and occupied the 2 Car Met-Cam in filming at Callow Park. Quite a long day for Phil and Mike which was not helped by the steady rain that fell for most of the day. We haven't quite detected the story line but look out for the dmu scenes at the 2010 Cannes Festival.
The refurbished pistons for Ferrybridge No3 were gathered in and DRE fabricated the necessary bolts for the benches to be installed at Shottle North. The IMT patrolled between Idridgehay and Duffield doing good works ( I am sure) and the Buffet Car was prepared for the weekend ahead.
The Booking Hall had a half day today but we coped as the weather seemed to deter any visitors.
