12th February 2012

It has been a weekend of contrasts. Yesterday started at -10ºC, whereas today has been very mild with a lot of the snow melting. First up on Saturday was clearing the snow off the platforms, crossing and footpaths following Thursdays latest snowfall. Work has continued on the S&T reconnections following the level crossing renewals. The S&T have terminated the cables we ran in last week for the level crossing barrier and lights. We have completed the new duct route to the north side flashing drivers white light and installed the old cable in it. This has been reconnected today. A lot of spare equipment has been tidied up today around the crossing and the spare troughing taken down the line into store. Surplus materials have been tidied away and waste materials moved away for disposal. All the old rails are now stored in the middle of the station ready for taking away for scrap.
With the trains running again for Half Term week, Weighbridge Teas have been open again serving our visitors as well as keeping the volunteers warm and refreshed. Between seeing to the refreshment needs, Malcolm also painted our platform benches undergoing refurbishment. Don’t forget Weighbridge Teas are open next weekend as well.
