Thanks again for a great and interesting course. Although we all ached, it was always a joy to come in each day and learn something new. The principles were easy to understand and splitting the course into two parts gave us the opportunity to go away and think about what we had learnt and turn up for the 2nd part with a fresh mind. Your course left me wanting to learn a lot more and although regular training in Reading may be a little tricky, I'll be heading up North for some more of your Kapap. Thank you for all your help and kindness and taking the time, to teach a little train driving lady like me.
