Pine  Needles and Flowers

It was a day of clearing up and making a display using Cyclamen.

This can be found next to our Friends of Broadway Station Bric a Brac Shop.


Now that the surveying was completed Terry and Rod temporarily set out the stones for the turn around point.

Autumn is the time of year when pine needles can be found everywhere and a big clear up has been necessary to prevent blocked gullies and drains.  Terry and Rod cleared the guttering on the Station and Signal Box, tackling the front and ends on both buildings. The canopy will be done once the trains have finished running.

The Chippies

More work was carried out on picnic tables and doors to the Refreshment Room by Peter and Dave.

Car Park

The Contractors have nearly completed the layout.

Station Masters at Broadway

We had three Station Masters at the Station, one in uniform, one in civvies and one "I should Coco?" He has the reputation of providing good bacon butties!!

The bacon butties well liked at Broadway.

More Pine Needles

The driveway and footpath were cleared by Tony and Vic. Tony also tackled the Acco drain channel at the bottom of the drive which had an accumulation of dirt as well as needles.

Thirty barrow loads went to the bonfire.  I wonder if there will be a Guy Fawkes?

Up on the Roof

Peter, Dave & Brian were sorting things up on the station roof, removing excess materials from above the ceilings and fitting loft boards.

Station Car Park

This is the latest view of the car park. The Contractors have now departed. We're now waiting for Worcestershire Council/Highways to decide on the entrance and exit format.
