Monday 21st July 2008

Dear all
 
A very pleasant day at long last with both Margaret-Ann and the late Helen-Louise receiving much attention. Margaret-Ann's brake rigging is being reassembled and the needle gun was in action on Helen-Louise. It is hoped that an 03 will return to the Incline services on August Bank Holiday weekend.
 
The Water Fall terminus of the narrow gauge is beginning to take shape with the viewing area under construction today and within the bowels of the Maintenance Facility Class 117 dmu car was being prepared for painting.
 
Continued work on steam engine parts was in progress and the Bubble Car had a journey towards Idridgehay on tree lopping duties. The Yard and Car Park had a further burst of weedkiller so we look our best for the weekend ahead.
 
The Booking Hall welcomed a number of visitors and fielded the usual phone calls - I have won a free Caribbean holiday!
