Progress Jubillee Monday 4th June 2012

Dear all
 
What a difference a day makes! Today was pleasant, sunny and reasonably warm injecting a feeling of wellbeing in our hard working volunteers and visitors alike.
 
Quite a team was in place to man the Booking Halls, crew the trains, cater to the masses and run the narrow gauge, miniature railway and EVRA shop. My thanks go out to all who made it a good earning day. Engineering support was on hand and Rob deserves a special mention for his readiness to deal with any faults that arise on our dmu fleet through the day. The dmu team erected a further two ceiling panels within the Class 119. This completed the small first class no smoking saloon, an area I haven't frequented.
 
31414 was subject to further tlc with the roof repainted along with the north end warning panel.
 
A feature for our visitors and staff was a barbeque on Platform 2 shown against the background of No3. I'm not sure which was creating more smoke.
 
More joy tomorrow.
 
Martin
