Santa Wednesday 10th December 2014

Dear all
The main event today was the first ever Wednesday Santa Train which worked very well with a team formed from many departments. As ever I am very grateful to those who have taken on board how important these trains are and recognise all the effort put into delivering a well received product.
Also today there was a good turnout of permanent way men, illustrated, to start disassembling our three way point which desperately requires new timbers in advance of the locomotive testing agreed for early 2015. The LMSCA continued with their work on the Mark 1 BSK and a tentative start was made on the restoration of the newly arrived Derby Lightweight 2 Car set.
The Booking Hall welcomed today's visitors and last minute sales ensured we achieved our own objective for Santa revenue which were some 50% above that achieved last year. All very encouraging!
