Monday 5th November 2007

Dear all
 
In someway a sad day as L53 left the site to return to the LH Group for further work after its testing cycle. There would now seem to be a hiatus before any further vehicles are received, probably into the New Year.
 
We did welcome an old friend to the Railway in the shape of Permaclipper 51639 that had languished with us for many years before being purchased by Balfour Beatty for refurbishment. The machine travelled the whole line in connection with its certification for use on the national network. It's a funny old world.
 
Confirmation was received that the machine to move the Gorsey Bank gates into position will arrive tomorrow so there will be more photo opportunities.
 
Regards
 
Martin
