    NB, There was no work going on at all today as they are building a reproduction of a paddle steamer this is not far enough advanced yet to film but I have requested Cheverton to keep his eye on it. We were told if we like to come back another day they would clear the place up a bit and do some assembly shots on the cars for us. I think that which we have will be enough.
    The inside shots are pretty poor but may come in useful.
    Please see other dope enclosed on facts and figures......
