Friday 21st December 2007

Dear all
A pleasant but cold day, again, when opportunity was given to two members of the VCT to experience the vagaries of the road/rail lorry with a view to it making access to work sites more manageable. Track inspections of the Ravenstor and Gorsey Bank passenger lines were undertaken and the logging dept made a brief appearance to satisfy demand.
A fault on the supply to the Gatwick Express was remedied so that the coaches can be warmed over the weekend for Santa train participants. The Buffet Car was also prepared for the weekend and the Booking Hall was kept very busy with a pleasant rush of late Santa bookings that have helped to fill the remaining places.
