Friday 30th October 2009

Dear all
 
Once more the Car Park filled with the sound of heavy goods vehicles as 188 concrete sleepers were delivered and put to ground. These will be loaded to the Sturgeon on Monday for transport to Duffield. The Logging Dept. will be satisfied for a little while by the logs delivered to their door and a supply of "garden quality" sleepers were unloaded for onward sale. The flail head was placed by the Weighbridge for further strengthening work and the Rolling Stock Engineer took advantage of all the works train vehicles being at Wirksworth to top up the axle boxes with oil.
 
The Lowmac was reloaded with the various S&T materials necessary to complete the Shottle installations and a refurbished dmu engine was prepared for fitting to the 2 Car Met-Cam set.
 
As the financial year end is tomorrow there was a thorough stock take of shop goods and work continued to sparkle up the exterior of the Mess Hall.
 
Much activity on a warm sunny day.
 
Martin
