Brr, it’s cold! The sun has been lovely, which makes up for -5ºC starts.
We have continued the lineside clearance from Platelayers, cutting down young trees which were growing out of the river retaining wall. A lot of time is spent cutting off the branches, gathering them up and stacking them ready for burning. The ‘trunks’ will be disposed of separately.
Back at the Station painting continues, with the new planks for the S&T van receiving a coat of primer and a first undercoat. The 3 white wicket gates have had further rot removed and new timber prepared for screwing into place. The Palvan door has been sanded, given a coat of primer and then filler added, where required.
