Well we have been out with the snow shovels again on Saturday morning, as snow and ice covered the platforms and footpaths. It was only from Saturday night onwards that the snow and ice started to really melt. Fortunately this does not stop us painting the planks in the General Room paint shop. In here further undercoats, filler, sanding and the first top coats have been applied over the course of the weekend.
Out on the line, we have continued clearing the lineside ditches and opening out drainage channels. The grass and reeds, which had dropped into the channels, were pulled out back onto the sides.
We’ve also been thinking about and gathering materials for jobs coming up later this winter.
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.
