The main job today was to complete the re-instatement of the running line. Some work by a small pw team and the unexpectedly available plant saw the rails replaced and one side clipped up, earlier in the week. This left today’s team to complete gauging, screwing down and clipping up the last rail. Once this had been packed and aligned the Ruston was run back up to the stock siding. The running line is now available again for passengers.
The two coaches in the bay platform were electrically connected up to the generator, allowing light and power through both coaches. In the buffet coach Ian continued work on fitting the recently received kitchen components. Alan was on site manning the exhibition and Mk2 buffet, now spread over two platforms!
Finally Joe was up for the weekend tending to the flower beds on the platform and the numerous other ground-works jobs on his list.
