Progress, Wednesday 27th January

Evenin' all,

What we call a grey day, saw the Per way team heading south from
Shottle in good time. A total of 18 more sleepers were changed. The
team are pleased to announce that they are now south of Derby Road 4
bridge. This is a big psychological step as the bridge has been in
sight for several months (during which time we also relaid Duffield.)

More members attended the PTS course, which is a regular feature of
Wednesdays during the closed season.

S&T were also in evidence continuing work on the fabrication of
materials for Duffield South

The Tamper on test, carried out its EMC testing today as well as its
noise monitoring.

A great deal of background admin work, as paperwork and records are
prepared. Please remember to attend the PTS courses, if you are not
already down. And please remember to notify Robin Lee of availability
for the forthcoming weeks activities.

Tomorrow, sees the Per way meeting at Shottle to continue sleeper
changing, before bringing the train back to Wirksworth - no logs this
week so that more sleepers can be loaded on Friday.
