Abba daba do! 70’s weekend has been rockin’ all over with Glam Rock performed by The Glamned whilst Abalicious performed classic Abba hits. With a supporting cast of the Real Ale Tent and the Tea Hut a great time was had by all. The bands certainly enjoyed themselves with great interaction between them and the audience. There was even a guest appearance by Alice Cooper who brought his snake to the event!?
Around the station the setts around the weighbridge and seating area have been cleaned of accumulated soil and weeds. The dismantling of the old wagon has been completed and the area tidied up. Further painting of the signal bracket fittings has continued allowing them to go into store until needed. The new timberwork above the General Room door has been installed, a new lead cover strip fitted and the area around touched up with paint.
The station now has CCTV camera coverage, as a new aid to theft deterrent. Several cameras have been installed, some carefully hidden inside buildings to help maintain the station’s ambience. All the cabling has been laid inside existing duct routes around the station, some of which were easier to use than others, and some had to be pumped clear of water before we could begin. Some further work is required to complete the scheme – something for next weekend!
