The lineside near 20 signal was successfully cleared of scrub this weekend with a large funeral pyre doing the business.  The sighting of the signal is now much better.  Some further scrub northwards has also been removed where it was starting to encroach near the line.  It went the same way as the rest!

The NER coach end has had its missing panels replaced, steelwork cleaned and primed and interior boarding reinstated to the same pattern.  It now awaits its roof boards fixing (we have them in store) and then the complicated task of fitting the mouldings undertaken.  Hopefully next weekend should see this progress.

The lineside fence north of the station has been completed as far as the bracket signal and the old fence recovered for disposal.  Richard has been giving the vegetable patches an overhaul using the compost we have been making over the last year.  The garden bed next to the weighbridge has also had Richards ministrations and he has brought new plants ready for the main season.
