HSB Staff Visit: a Postscript
All the HSB visitors are now safely back in Germany and back into their normal work routines. They all had a great time and very much appreciated the chance they had to work alongside us again and meet our customers on the trains.

There were lots of highlights, though their ride on the gravity train probably topped the lot!

FR General Manager, Paul Lewin, presented two framed photo's of significant recent events to Dirk Bahnsen, HSB Corporate Communications Manager, on Friday 18th at Tanybwlch. One shows Taliesin crossing the FR's Cei Mawr soon after the trees had been cleared, whilst the other shows one of the sponsor's trains in the Aberglaslyn Pass on Phase 4 of the Welsh Highland Railway. On the Saturday evening the HSB visitors presented us with a "Wernigerode to Porthmadog" carriage route indication board to hang up in Spooner's.

A short television report of their visit was transmitted on the evening of 21st April on the German regional MDR channel and a longer report is scheduled for the 3rd May.
