Progress Saturday 19th December 2009

Dear all,
Extra brownie points today for the rather small team that managed to deliver the Santa services in freezing conditions. The four engined Met-Cam set pushed the Jolly Roger without difficulty on its initial journey to Ravenstor and displayed no starting problems in sub zero temperatures. The Booking Hall welcomed a few extra last minute customers that helped swell the coffers and the Gatwick Express has been left on overnight so that we start tomorrow with reasonably well heated vehicles.
There was a very welcome donation of fuel for the dmu fleet and many janitorial duties were attended to. It may be a sign of the times that a sink plug and chain disappeared from site!
All hands on deck for tomorrow's production please - it is our busiest day of the Santa season and it may snow overnight preventing some of the more distant members of the team reaching Wirksworth.
