Progress Friday 11th May 2012

Dear all
 
The main activity today was a pleasant Steam Experience Day with two participants with us for the full day and one who had a taster session this morning. My thanks go to Mick and Neil who manned the engine and John Evans who acted as guard for the day.
 
In the warm sunshine the mower was brought into action for the picnic area and the approach road bank. Another example of all the background effort that goes into making our Railway tidy and welcoming.
 
The Pullman Buffet Car team looked after our experience customers together with the train crew and the Booking Hall fielded the usual selection of phone calls.
 
Omitted from yesterday's report was the energy put into the Shottle loop with screwing down, jacking and packing featuring. The whole line track patrol was completed with Ravenstor and the section between Idridgehay and Shottle polished off.
 
Quite a pleasant day.
 
Martin
