Another interesting day with our customer whose vehicle was ready to move today - as ever we are very happy to help and try and understand what is required of us - all parties seemed happy with the end result.
A brief visit by a young offender and minder saw further ballast fettling in the Barnsley lane area and we benefited from a very generous fuel donation. Our diesel fuel bills have risen very dramatically this year, along with everybody else, and today's windfall has great benefit to our enterprise.
Much dmu maintenance and cleaning took place and I have to take my hat off to Railcar Enterprises who undertook this basic and very necessary task.
The Booking Hall maintained a calming influence and our Finance Manager arrived to ensure all funds were banked.
I am sure you will wish Les (77) who is presently residing in the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary a speedy recovery. He is enjoying designer meals and will be tended to tomorrow - they think it is a hernia and I am sure all assistance will be given to help him when the Duffield platform reconstruction starts. I have sent him all our best wishes
