Well it’s been another sunny weekend with not a drop of rain (is this the summer at last?).
Our esteemed Station Master has abandoned us for the delights of North Norfolk with Beth and Alex (including some signalling turns on the North Norfolk Railway). As a result we have had an easy weekend – but still achieved quite a lot anyway!
Advantage was taken of the dry with various painting jobs progressed. Parts of the Wartime Weekend build were undercoated, the Signal Box nameboards are up to topcoat and with a bit of touching up to finish can go back up next week. Two steel milk churns are now finished in silver ready to be put on display (refurbishment was started by the juniors on their last visit).
More of the lineside clearance and levelling north of the station was done over the two days with a start made on burning the accumulated brash with a small fire in a clear area.
Weighbridge Teas had a steady weekend with Patience and David stepping in to serve to allow Doreen, Malcolm, Janice and Tony to attend the Railway’s AGM at Pickering. Fear not as David’s gardening wasn’t neglected because Richard (Patience’s husband) tended to the flowers and vegetables. The sweet peas are rampant with bunches for sale on our produce barrow.
