Apologies for the delay in the last Blog – technology issues prevented me uploading it.

Any way,  this weekend was one of tidying up after the last 2 weekends away.  When we were up in Newtondale laying track, we rescued several small pine trees from the lineside.  These have been delivered to the Station and planted in a small nursery whilst they grow up.

Raking out of the lineside ditches continues, returning the drainage of the area back to what it should be.

We have put 2 of our 12’ benches into the CCT to dry out, as both back planks need replacing.  At the same time we will give the bases a repaint to keep them smart and watertight.  Our workshop has been given a tidy up, making it easier to find our tools and spare parts.

In the General Room the 3 repaired wicket gates have been repainted, whilst further rotten wood has been removed from the fourth.
