Saturday 29th March

A busy few days at Whitrope with the earth works for the bay platform underway. Jim, Alan and Bill were on hand to keep an eye on progress as the bank was cut back to allow access for the coaches to the bay. There is still a great deal to do but there will be a number of working days in April (see events page) which should hopefully see the majority of the ground works for the bay completed.
On Saturday there was a good turn out of members with a variety of jobs done. The pw team inserted two concrete sleepers on the north side of the crossing to balance out across the rail joint. Further work was done on the Fowler with Davie continuing to progress the frames and bodywork. The engine was aligned is now ready for the coupling to be bolted and the mountings fully secured. Joe was on site and progressing with a number of groundwork tasks.
Note as stated in last weeks report the road from Hawick is currently shut and diversions are in place.



  1. Great work men. well done.
