Progress Friday 28th August 2015

Dear all,

A quiet day of pottering around before the Bank Holiday weekend with the shop being restocked of sweets and other worldy goods.

The Station Foreman painted the skirting board in the new Booking Office and some track patrolling was done.

I suppose the main item on the agenda today was entertaining four excited Drive a Diesel Day participants and their guests. They tried their hand on the Bubble followed by the 33, ably guided by John Allsop. Richard backed up the day with the entertaining.

It was a good day as we welcomed three new volunteers to our railway. Hopefully the recent recruitment drive is paying off a bit and we can point them towards the areas where we are short of people. Although it does take a while before they're able to fill the gaps on the rota unfortunately.
