Second to none : Chairman’s update to Support Crew meetings

The Chairman’s closing remarks at the end of the Support Crew meeting held at Tyseley Locomotive Works on 7th January 2017:

  1. Where do I start?
  2. I feel privileged to be a member of the Duke family
  3. The members have shown that they are – Second to None
  4. We have partnered with Tyseley Locomotive Works whose reputation for quality and reliability goes before them and they are – Second to None
  5. We have over 300 members whose support and enthusiasm is – Second to None
  6. We have a fantastic team of support crew members whose contribution to the Duke’s overhaul is the envy of all others and is – Second to None
  7. We have a backroom team whose unsung efforts play a vital role in the Duke’s progress and success and are – Second to None
  8. We have a management committee who toil continuously to ensure that the essential ingredients of the Trust are run on tried and tested business lines and are – Second to None
  9. None of us are more important than any other member of our family, we are all individual gogs in the Duke’s machinery and as a result our combined efforts ensure that we are – Second to None
  10. It would be wrong of me to omit one other very important member of our family – The Duke – who is also – Second to None
  11. Our joint achievements to date have been nothing short of amazing and have ensured we are on target to return the Duke to the mainline, on schedule at the end of 2018 early 2019. That achievement will again demonstrate that we as a family are – Second to None
  12. I would like to place on record a very big thank you to every member of the Duke family who continue to ensure that we are – Second to None
