Well the good news is that the snow has gone, unfortunately the road to the station is still closed. We, well Alexa, have finally completed the marathon painting of the weatherboard planks for the new lamp room, ably assisted by Janet on Saturday. We have now begun applying wood preservative to the framing materials.
Along the lineside we have continued attacking the blackthorn bushes, finally clearing them from along the fence line. All we have to do now is burn them, we tried this weekend but the wood is all still far too wet.
Elsewhere we have continued to clear up rusty steelwork and a signal finial, all of which has gone to Alexa to paint.
Don’t forget that the road to the station is still CLOSED until Christmas, at least, whilst they rebuild it. Access is only by foot.
