Progress Wednesday 21st November 2012

Dear all
 
A most unpleasant and very wet day that frustrated our PWT and SBT ( a new term for you to absorb representing the Shottle Building Team). Effectively no real work was achieved apart from a transmission of timber between Hazelwood and Shottle by rail by rail/road Landrover - maybe another first.
 
The dmu team have applied the final lining out of the "Bubble Car" which represents the conclusion of this splendid exercise where we are definitely unique in being able to offer economical passenger services with single unit railcars.
 
The Filing Fairy continues the task of competence recording and the LCC delivered and categorised the presents acquired for the Santa trains. The FF husband made strides to prepare for slinging courses with a willing volunteer acquired from Network Rail.
 
The Safety Management Review Group have finalised the new Rule Book Assessment that is now lodged under the member section of the web site with many thanks to Robin.
 
The Booking Hall had a productive day processing incoming Santa bookings together with a coach company who would like to visit us next September. The Pullman Buffet Car had a thin day after visitors were surprised that we were open but seemed reluctant to engage with a sales opportunity. Presumably they don't pay for anything anywhere!
