Friday 18th Jan

Evenin' all,

A nice quiet day, a day to play catchup on a million and one things.

The Digger driver has completed his allotted tasks and has done a very
good job. More rain tested his ditch digging and we shall see what the

With driver training on the Bubble car taking place, Rod and I were
able to meet up with the Bubble Car at Idridgehay, to check clearances
for the Umbrella platform (An umbrella covers something for a short
time). The design has been altered slightly to gain better clearance.

Various visitors to the site including two members from another
railway who can get a perway gang here to assist with any new works.
They were given the full tour and were much impressed by our layout and
the cleanliness of the site.

More internal carriage repairs to the Incline coach, once the fitter
had found it hiding in its new location.
