There were 10 volunteers at Broadway today, continuing the jobs from Wednesday. It was a nice dry day but at first very cold, shows we are getting closer to winter. There were no ghosties or goolies on site so nothing to frighten us. Halloween Steam & Scream going on down the line.
As the notice says above, our Bric-a-Brac Emporium will be closing down at the end of November but will be in a new spot next year. So the keepers of the shop are hoping for a busy month before their rest time. If you are after a bargain railway book or artefact there is a reduction on all items. This includes lots of little treasures, so please pay us a visit.
The Station Platform 1 looking from Platform 2.
With the jobs completed up in the attic the scaffolding boards had to come down once again and then set up in the rooms below for work to commence on the ceilings. This involved Robin, Ron & Keith most of the morning.
Vic, the man behind the camera, was on cleaning up duty, moving Heras fencing to the storage area on Platform 2. He also removed any scrap to the bins and cleared a path to the mains electrical cabinet. It is weed killing next Wednesday, I don't think we have any weedy men in our group??

Permanent WayThe P/Way team were with us again today and progressed the track further down the line.
VisitorsWe had our usual lots of visitors from across the road at the Caravan Club site but also a dad & his son who live in Station Road paid us a visit. No trains today but will be next Easter.
