Keeping the Home Fires BurningOn a day with zero temperatures it was nice to benefit from the warmth of a fire. Vic, with help from Peter, Dave, Paul, Clive, Ray, Dave B & Tony collected all the rubbish stacked on Platform 1 and moved to Platform 2.
This mug seems to have a mind of its own! It has been spotted in a large variety of places over the years. It belongs to Paul who seems to require a strong cuppa tea wherever he is around the station. Yesterday was Paul's birthday so at the morning break a large chocolate cake appeared, but not for long with all those hungry mouths to feed!!
DrainageTerry and his team unable to do any slab laying because of the very cold temperatures, set about a modification to part of the frontage drains.
Saturday 24thI was not able to do my usual Saturday Blog as I was at the Station Staff AGM, but Phil passed over two photos. A team hard at work levelling off Platform 1 ready for the next covering.
Todays' photos are submitted thanks to Dave as my camera's battery went flat.
Building & Services
B&S were with us again today working along the front of the station. They placed stone kerbs in readiness for when the better weather arrives and installation can commence. Also, the area has been dressed ready for slab laying.
