Progress Bank Holiday Monday 25th August 2014

Dear all
It's quite difficult to be upbeat about today, a Bank Holiday!, with its incessant fine rain that dampened most spirits but the team soldiered on with a dmu Duffield service and Henry Ellison on the Incline. Very special thanks go to Richard who had the most miserable day as third man. The EVRA shop supported our endeavours as did the Pullman Buffet Car and the Booking Halls at Wirksworth and Duffield. The VCT team of two achieved a little work after sheltering under Hazelwood bridge realising the rain would be unremitting.
The dmu team were out in force conducting a FP exam on the "Bubble Car" and vastly improving the appearance of their support coach within the comfort of the Maintenance Facility with a glimpse of their work shown. The LMSCA attended by retired hurt that they could do no more today but the results of the improvements to the exterior of the BTO are beginning to be seen.
Our good wishes go to Julie Ball who sustained a fall in the shower on the last day of her holiday and may have broken a few bones. We hope she has a swift recovery.
PS - a very short video for you for anyone who remembers Henry - please don't blink while it is on!
