Friday 2nd October 2009

Dear all
Another pleasantly. if cold, busy day. We welcomed guests from many other railways to participate in the driver experience day as a prelude to the Railcar Association weekend. In the Car Park 188 concrete sleepers and 100 timber sleepers were loaded onto the Works Train for despatch to Duffield on Monday. Special thanks to Vince Ware who answered the appeal for "slingers".
Sperry Rail continued their maintenance of SRS242 and there was a litter pick at Gorsey Bank which also now boasts a sign identifying it as a feature. The Buffet was open for our visitors as was the EVRA Shop and Booking Hall.
Belated thanks to David Newby for a splendid new key cabinet fixed to the wall in my office yesterday.
