28th & 29th October 2017

Life has returned to ‘normal’ at Levisham. We have taken delivery of some more plywood, donated by a Pickering firm. This has been sorted and moved into one of our stores vans to keep it dry. Some further material has been delivered, which is only good for burning. Let’s hope next Saturday at dusk is dry! The green marquee main poles have been given their second coat of paint (there wasn’t time before Wartime to do this). Work on the Palvan door continues, with further sanding and filling taking place. After a busy autumn, the time has come for our workshop coach to get a tidy up. A start has been made, which has included sorting through further donated tools and screws.
In readiness for the lifting of the box van body into position in the yard, where further work can take place on it, the nearby wagons have been shunted clear of the site.
In preparation for our continuation of lineside fencing renewal, we have delivered some more fence posts up the line to the site where the Forestry Commission are clearing their trees alongside. Gardening around the Station has continued, with planting of bulbs and the spreading of manure, more of which was delivered during the day.
Weighbridge Teas have nearly closed for the winter (see below) after another successful year. They will be transferring their skills to Pickering in December, to help out with the Santas. They have been using their carving skills this week, preparing the pumpkins for the Halloween trains.
Don’t forget, the Velocipedes are returning to Levisham this Friday. Weighbridge Teas will be open all day especially for this event.
