Progress Friday 14th August 2020

Dear all,

A cooler day than of late, much to the relief of many trying to progress their various projects. The new staff toilet and shower room has progressed well this week with the new ceiling being installed, made of plastic wet room panels. The new LED lights have also gone up, PIR activated too.

Today, the BSK Kitchen Car has been added to the rake of coaches for the weekend as our on train dining offerings begin in earnest following the closure tomorrow. Compartment availability for regular passengers is very limited indeed for tomorrow, making it possibly the busiest day so far since reopening.

Elsewhere, a meeting took place at Shottle to discuss signal sightings to further the project there and further work was carried on EVRA's SK which had a totally rebuilt end over the last few months. The Derby Lightweight project also continued and the steam shed has had some replacement panels installed to replace old ones.
