Thursday 21st August 2008

Dear all
Another highly productive day with the Car Park cleared of the last of the track components donated by Network Rail and ready for the up coming Bank Holiday weekend. The VCT claimed to have had a "normal" day with much clearance in the Old Lane bridge area.
We were pleased to entertain another group from Atkins Rail to brief them on our test opportunities and one of the team turned out to be leading light on the Golden Valley narrow gauge at Swanwick! Roy (72) and Les (77) completed their refresh of the Mess Hall and it does look so much better.
Further Class 20 training took place and the former Helen-Louise is gradually returning to a green livery. There was activity on our narrow gauge and a delivery of ready mix to complete the Tunnel End platform.
Many visitors passed through the Booking Hall on a day of sunshine and downpours.
