July Track Weekend

With a number of regulars missing due to holidays and other reasons the main task for the weekend was to complete improved access from the platform to the foot-crossing and the far side of the coaches in the bay platform. With the completion of the plumbing in the buffet kitchen the volunteers now need access to the far side of the coaches in the bay platform. It therefore needed the area at the end of the platform improving to provide good even footing.
The crew available over the weekend constructed shuttering during Saturday then used some of the type 1 available in the car park to fill the paths on the Sunday.
Davie as always was working on the Fowler, although the showers that persisted throughout the weekends curtailed the planned painting.
On the Sunday the Ruston was available for footplate rides as the unit was unavailable due to nesting birds.

The railway has a stand at the Borders Union Show in Kelso on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th so pop along to say hello if you are in the area. It is also a full running weekend with trains running on both Saturday and Sunday.
