A good number of volunteers at Whitrope today allowed a number of jobs to be undertaken. More work was carried out on the Mk1 coach, both internally and externally. Work was done on a number of the windows to ensure that they can be operated and therefore they can be closed to keep out the weather. Tom continued work inside the coach so that it can be used as the volunteers mess area and office. This will free up the Mk1 buffet so that work can continue to get it ready for use by visitors next year. Chris applied some more paint to the outside before the weather closed in driving people inside.
Davie continues to work away on the side panels for the Fowler. A small pw team were busy carrying out work on the main-line towards the tunnel. Joe was on site working on the flower-beds on the platform, typically he was not put off by the rain, and gardened on regardless. Baz was on site in the week and the pw shed looks much tidier thanks to his efforts.
There will be a track-weekend on 29th and 30th of November with work focused on the lines towards the tunnel. It will also be a chance to continue the work on-going to ensure the site is tidy and secure before the winter weather closes in.
