Monday 12th October 2009

Dear all
A "catch up" sort of day with the Works Train taken down to Duffield to resume the endeavours there tomorrow as we hope to complete the Duffield North crossover and headshunt this week to permit the rails to be laid in the loop line the week after.
There was much continued preparation for the up coming Model Railway Exhibition that has become an annual fixture. Many telephone enquiries were received including a quickening pace for Santa bookings and our seventh Day with a Driver reservation for next year.
A visit to Balfour Beatty, Sheffield was undertaken to collect vital parts for the Shottle North point work.
