It makes it all worthwhile!

Hi Martin,


I'd like to thank you, Richard Buckby and all your colleagues very much for their friendly, helpful and knowledgeable welcome to me and my team yesterday – do please pass on my gratitude to all we met.  It was useful to understand the commercial services you are able to offer to the rail industry, to see the restoration work you are engaged in, and to understand some of the operational and commercial issues involved in running the railway.  It was also a good opportunity to help me and my colleagues get to know each other a bit better as a team.  Thank you too for the travel opportunities afforded, including the Ravenstor incline visit, and also for the opportunity to see the DJW 3 footbridge we will be working on later this year.  Please continue to liaise with my colleague James Spencer on the timing and access issues associated with this project, which we look forward to delivering with Amco.

In conclusion, we had an enjoyable and worthwhile afternoon, so please accept my sincerest thanks.


Best regards
