Saturday 21st December

A dry forecast for Saturday 21st prompted Alan and Jim to visit the site with the intentions of applying a coat of wood preservative to the new signal cabin before winter really sets in. Other small jobs, but none the less important, were also carried out including erecting a fence between the new signal cabin and reception hut. Silicone sealant and packing were added to the footings of the cabin to stop the ingress of water. The cabin was built with sleepers as a base but they are all slightly different thicknesses so still had to be properly sealed.
Chris arrived mid-morning and was engaged in weeding some of the track near the tunnel.
Arrangements had been made for a Christmas get together at Wetherspoon’s in Hawick, later in the afternoon. Nine of us enjoyed the “blether” and some tasty food.
