It’s all white now! The road into the Station is totally blocked at the top corner – it’s 10’ deep there. Lower down we have managed to clear the road, so once someone has dug out the top we will be back in business. We managed to get in via the Forest Drive using a 4×4 vehicle, but it’s not recommended
Back at the Station both platforms, the level crossing, and all paths have been cleared of snow. The points have been dug out and are ready for use; all we need now is a train….
As the planned lineside burning has not been possible this weekend, we have progressed with the restoration of the NER van body in the Station Yard instead. The new headstock is nearly fitted, just a minor tweak with the chisel will get it into place. A start has also been made replacing some of the underframe side beam ends, which have suffered from rot.
