Progress Thursday 10th May 2012

Dear all
We welcomed a customer for testing and observance by the Vehicle Acceptance Body providing three concrete sleepers as a test load for the small trailer to be towed by the vehicle. All the work was achieved within Wirksworth Yard and the parties seemed pleased with their endeavours.
The dmu team continued with work in the Maintenance Facility to seal 51505's roof and checked over the two car service set. The team then indulged in a little water play before arranging for the Class 20 to release the LMS Brakevan required for tomorrow's activities.
The VCT continued their project to smarten up the boundary at Hazelwood station which will be a noticeable improvement to the vista for our passengers.
The Booking Hall received further group booking deposits and enquiries and the Buffet Car entertained a respectable number of customers.
Exterior carriage cleaning is demonstrated in the attached photo. The quality of presentation of our vehicles exteriors and interiors marks us out from any rivals. This is not an accident but occurs due the diligence of a number of people and they should be roundly thanked.
