What wonderful Wombling weather! First up this weekend was finishing off the white lining of the platforms which Gerry had started on Friday and very smart they look too. The CCT entranceway now sports new diagonal side fences and a tarmac surface, a short sentence for quite a lot of work. The lineside scrub we dug out last summer and has been drying out down the line has had its first burn, only a couple more days to go to get rid of it all! At the other end of the station at the ‘slot’ through the trees we have commenced removing the timber with the use of chainsaws cutting the timber into liftable pieces.
Our new gardening hut has arrived and is now erected in the yard on recycled paving flags behind our timber screening panels. All being well our gardeners will get it fitted out next weekend. The NER coach end has had further filler applied, another couple of coats of paint and now sports a felt roof, very posh.
A long week coming up with Easter and May Day Bank holiday. Come and see us, use the Weighbridge for drinks and souvenirs and help us at the station – all help gratefully received.
