Progress Wednesday 9th February 2011

Dear all
 
A more calm, measured day with the PWT continuing the process of sleeper squaring. It would seem that Shottle to Hazelwood is now in good order and it remains to check and adjust, where necessary, the section between Hazelwood and Duffield Tunnel. The team are asked to assemble at Shottle tomorrow where all the equipment is based.
 
We welcomed a customer for testing who produced three machines for processing but confined their activities to the Wirksworth Station area and were pleased with their day ably hosted by Mick Thomas.
 
The LMSCA were in action and report that the underframe of the coach is now repainted including the vacuum cylinders. The "strings" are now fitted to the cylinders ready for its first test of the system..
 
The Booking Hall dealt with more Shareholder mailouts and processed on line and postal bookings for the opening weekend.
 
In the south the Duffield platform team achieved the setting of a further 85 tactiles and have earnestly requested that no one stands on them for at least 48 hours, There are 21 left to be dealt with on this longest of all our structures.
 
Another most satisfactory day.
 
Martin
