Signalling dug out

After clearing the Down platform ready for the trains it was then time to deal with the signals. The only way to get the signals to work is to dig off the snow – all 15” to 2’ off the wire runs, every yard of them! It’s a long, heavy job and took the whole of Saturday. Sunday morning, all of it, was spent digging out the three sets of points ready for next weekends operations. Just as we were thinking about lunch, we were called out to another tree which was fouling the line due to the weight of snow. Hopefully it will be back to some sense of normality next weekend but we will have to wait and see. Don’t forget to check out the pictures from the weekend in the Gallery under November snow!
