18th/19th January 2014

Well the ‘boss’ has been away this weekend so the team have had a lie in! The ‘boss’ was down in Sheffield collecting a load of roof slates which have been donated to us. These are now safely back at the station and in store ready for future use.
At the station the mileposts have had white undercoat and gloss applied to them and the 6’ platform bench, which has been drying out for a couple of months, has been primed and undercoated. The Pway shed has benefitted from a tidy up (ready for the new slates) and this has released more space. In the paddock, two stored platform trolleys have been cleaned down and one brought back for a dry out and repaint.
Today the team have been down on the track relay site fitting more clips and fishplates – in the rain – they’re a hardy bunch! They are steadily working their way towards the station but there is still a fair bit more to do. Any help gratefully received.
