Christmas Eve 24th December 2007

Dear all,
A pleasant day where the trading of the final Santa weekend was accounted for and all the cash on hand was banked! This has been our best Santa season ever and all concerned should feel very proud of their very hard work on behalf of the Railway. It is not so easy to transform from the overall objective of opening the Railway to putting on a show stopper where all the Santa experiences have been surpassed by a brilliant production. Very many thanks to all the people that made it all happen. You have to say it's a funny old world that would have intrigued, and won support from, the General Manager of the Midland Railway, Sir James Alport, truly an entrepreneur!
At base Santa was inflated and visitors were welcomed. A pleasant phone call was received from a magazine entitled "Rail Infrastructure" that closely follows our testing enterprise advising that they will featuring mtt next month.
May I wish all our great team the happiest of Christmases and suggest they truly relax before even more challenges next year. I never ceased to be amazed at what is achieved and whilst it is not often said, you are all appreciated!
