Progress Report Wednesday 24th October 2007

Evenin' all,

A busy day with, not 1, not even 2 but 3 revenue earing companies
gracing us with their prescence. This was additional to passenger
services and the Buffet car earning a few bob in the process. Tube
Lines had a couple of drivers carrying out Route Knowledge training on
the Gorsey Bank Line

The Per way team were busy at Idridgehay digging the post holes for
the new gates, the holes are now nearly ready for a some concrete.

Mary and Rod were busy in their playpen making more of the new kiddies
play area. We had the mini digger opening up one of the old drainage
ditches on the 'racing straight' by Alton Manor, thus releasing the
trapped water, work continues there tomorrow.

Another 0800 start to convey the digger driver to site, then some
gentle shunting and some sleeper repairs 'down south'. Also picking the
digger up on the return journey. Works train to depart around 0930 ish.
