Saturday 26th January

Just a quick update. Saturday was a cold wet day, enough to test the metal of the most hardy volunteer.
During the week 20 ton of ballast had been dropped off at the level crossing ready for spreading to prepare the area for the low loader which it is planned to collect the Fowler. So despite the weather the outside work had to be done. A number of old sleepers were transported up to the crossing to use as part of the job and a start was made at getting an even spread of material across the area. About a third of the ballast was used, so something to look forward to next Saturday, when the rest of the pile will be used.
A little more work was done on the signal frame foundations which are slowly coming up to height.
A number of people were working on the LMS wagon which has now had most of the timber removed.
No pictures this week unfortunately as it was a bit wet and cold for photographs.
