Baz Shell reports:
In true Whitrope style up the hill it was snowing, cold, and very wet.
Some preventative maintenance was carried out on the Permaquip to return it to service; the tracklaying gear was then loaded onto the trailer, with plans being to position the other rail into place on the first panel of the running line. This was done and it has been temporarily clipped and bolted up, but the weather was truly against us, so it was pack the gear away, have a cup of tea and planning chat, and head off back home.
Sod’s law that once over the hill, the sun was shining and the birds where singing!
The Fowler boys must get a different weather forcast to the track boys as they stayed at home in the dry and warm.
