We start this weekend with a big “Thank you” to the Pway Dept, for lifting the box van body from its year-long stay just north of the level crossing onto a base of packing in the Station yard. This will allow us to repair the underframe and install the running gear and wheels.
The 3 wicket gates have been re-hung at the level crossing, ready for services to recommence on Boxing Day. They took a bit of jiggery pokery to fit correctly! The fourth gate will probably come in for a light overhaul after the Christmas running finishes, as it too needs a repaint in places.
The General Room has been cleaned out ready for the train services, including washing all the windows. For good measure the Ladies Room was also given ‘the treatment’, as was the Waiting Shelter on the opposite platform.
In our workshop another general clean up and sort out has been undertaken, ready for the Christmas week.
I will finish by wishing all our readers and Wombles a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
