Progress Friday 25th June 2010

Dear all
 
Another very pleasant day with a satisfactory work rate at Duffield platform with the completion of the second layer of stone blocks on the section of wall that had to be taken down and rebuilt. The master craftsman will be in attendance both tomorrow and Sunday and would welcome any help you can give.
 
Much dmu maintenance took place with both 51505 and 51188 receiving attention. Gary the Pole removed the camera from the lighting pole near the Maintenance Facility together with its casing for relocation in the new grand plan. He then undertook watering duties to refresh the station garden and all the pots and planters.
 
Further flailing of the Incline was achieved together with a little more attention to the perimeter of the Car Park. IMT patrolled the Incline and the line from Idridgehay to Milepost 139 1/2 remedying minor defects as they progressed.
 
The Booking Hall welcomed a few visitors and prepared for the weekend.
