It’s been much milder this weekend, although the sun has stayed hidden behind cloud all the time.
The green Palvan has received its second top coat resulting in a much smarter look, whilst both buffer beams now sport black gloss. The underframe on both sides has been wire wheeled clean and given a good coat of metal primer. There was even time to give the west side a coat of grey undercoat as well.
Our ply store has been given a good sort out, putting the multiple sized panels into similar stacks. Damaged and poor sheets have been removed for disposal next weekend. A goodly amount of full lengths have been despatched, by train, to Goathland in the care of their Station Master who turned up out of the forest. These will be used to clad the inside of their new shed, whose erection is progressing well.
The two mileposts have received their second coat of metal primer and two coats of white undercoat over the weekend. 1111 has been decorated on the south end ready for its departure later this month.
Weighbridge Teas had a quiet weekend, giving them time to give the Weighbridge a good tidy up. The park benches from outside the Weighbridge have been taken inside for the winter to protect them.
For those who like the unusual, Levisham is hosting a collection of Velocipedes on Friday and Saturday next weekend. To support them the Weighbridge WILL be open, serving drinks and snacks including bacon butties and pasties!
