Progress Monday 18th March 2013

Dear all
A gentle day with the LMSCA Mark 1 men continuing to deal with the many problems of their BSK with today continuing further work on the guards doors. This small but perfectly formed team is transforming a vehicle with many problems back into something that will be a credit to our Railway.
I was grateful to Hylton and Tony Watt who braved a Monday to trip two empty Lowmacs from Wirksworth to Shottle and return with three empty Dogfish for loading with white gold later in the week.This action was most helpful in the grand plan which make more sense next week.
The Booking Hall and Pullman Buffet Car dealt with a few brave hearts that visited or called the Railway today.
The DST are searching for more people to be involved in the preparation and disposal of the visiting steam engine in May. This is early morning and late evening work but does provide an opportunity to experience life from times gone by. Please let me know if you are interested on and I will let Bob Gibbens know so he can complete his planning of the three week event.
