Progress Friday 16th November 2012

Dear all
John carried on with the lining out of the "Bubble Car" and test fitted the new arm rests he had manufactured for the Class 119. The latter required fine tuning so they have returned to the Allsop workshop for modification.
The Safety Management Review Group met to start updating the Rule Book Assessment paper and the Sectional Appendix. Our small customer returned for the second of their two day session.
It was good to see Richard Flatman who is making a sound recovery from his major heart surgery. During the afternoon we welcomed David Horne, MD of East Midlands Trains to discuss areas of mutual interest and see how we may work even more closely together during 2013.
Two events were missed from yesterday's lengthy report. The first was that there was further interior work undertaken on the Oaks Brakevan project and the second was to record the first Online sales of the newly introduced "stocking fillers" put on offer through the web shop.
Repairs were undertaken to the pedestrian gates at Idridgehay where the prognosis was that one good one could be created from the two returned to Wirksworth.
The Booking Hall had an admin sort of day and the Pullman Buffet Car dealt with a steady trade.
