Saturday 3rd August

A busy day with a good number of visitors. With it being a running weekend the ‘planet’ was in action with the brake van and the mini bus was in service running people up and down to Riccarton Junction. There was a lot of positive feedback with everyone enjoying their visit. Sunday also saw a steady flow of visitors. It is always rewarding for the volunteers to see happy people enjoying the railway and makes all the hard work worth it.

Whilst the visitors were looked after a number of projects were still ongoing. Davie was busy completing the welding required around the base of the signal. Chris was up and progressing his hard work on the Mk1 workshop coach, with the external appearance steadily improving. Work on the signalling system advanced again, George working away on the levers, with Jim and Duncan laying the timbers in the area under the future location of the lever frame.

The next running weekend is at the start of September so why not pop along you will always find a warm welcome.
