Progress Thursday 1st May 2014

Dear all,

First day of May and what a May it is going to be! We have Rocks and Rails this weekend, the Big Bash next week, traction engines the weekend after, followed by another Bank Holiday and our Cheese and Wine Special!

Back to today and the DMU team spent the morning doing a shuffle with the coaches, before attending to a leak on Class 108 E50599 so that it will be OK this weekend if it rains (although of course we don't want it to rain as we have an event on, although one could exercise the new Rainy Day Guarantee anyway).

Also in the yard, the PWT assisted with a remote part of the Shottle project and the VCT had a multi-fire day in their quest to open up the bank between the former headshunt and the incline line north side of Cemetery Lane bridge.

The Booking Office dealt with yet more Amazon enquiries and items relating to this weekend's event and the Big Bash.

I will leave you with a reminder video from our friends at trent barton about the Big Bash next week.
