Progress Thursday 30th November 2017

Dear all,

A bitterly cold end to November which saw the start of preparations for this year's Santa Experience. The Commercial Department erected the marquee on the platform and fortunately they managed to complete it with the contractors not laying tarmac on the platform until lunch time. They had cut into the tarmac on the platform to put in some extra drainage due to a very high water table in the area. Tethering the marquee down for winter weather takes just as long as putting the thing up!

Down the yard, the Santa train was marshalled, tested and delivered to the platform for the elves to begin decorating. LJ Breeze also received some attention as it was misbehaving earlier this week.

The S&T team were in full swing down near the shed too.
