Progress Report Easter Saturday

Dear all,

A tolerably pleasant day for a Bank Holiday weekend, only a little rain.
The DMUs received some routine maintenance and the yard gates were
scraped in preparation for painting.

The main business of the day was, however, the Easter service and this
ran backwards and forwards to Idridgehay and Ravenstor all day, to the
increasement of the general public happiness. The ringing of the till
bell could be heard, yea, as far as the parlour of the Malt Shovel.
Double yesterday's income was achieved and toiled up to the premises of
one of the country's lesser bankrupt financial institutions.

Staff Cars to the Ballast Dock please tomorrow and Monday.

ATB, Anton
