Twenty-five intrepid volunteers signed in today & we received numerous visits, including contractors' lorries, Building Services Dept. & Tim Bright of Steam Railway magazine. The day was dry & bright but bitterly cold with a continuous wind.
A few pictures first of the results from Monday's work:
The finished post & rail fence & gate, closing off the ground between platform 1 & driveway footpath.
Neal is seen preparing more shuttering. This time for the bases of the eventual canopy extension on the northern side of the station.
Mike T spent most of the day putting a first undercoat on recently fitted spear fencing panels & the steel gate posts.
Peter K brought along the final section of spear fencing he had recently fabricated & you can see him in the early stages of installing it in the gap.
Contractor Stevie W assisted by moving some of the excavated waste soil onto the fenced area between platform 1 & driveway. He helped level where he could with the backacter.
A few bags, surplus to immediate requirements, were stored next to our supply concrete aggregate.
Bob W & Tony set drainage channels alongside the platform wall of the station
In the afternoon JCB Steve prepared a trench for B&S to start laying the footings for the kerbs
We see Tim Bright, second left, with Dave B, Alan Miller & Ian Crowder in the café area.
Thank you for viewing.
