It’s been a relatively dry weekend albeit with a cold wind.

With the delivery of more tree stump plugs (1000!) we have been back on the lineside, cutting the tree stumps nice and low and then drilling the tops to insert the plugs.  At last we have finished those between the 14½ and 14¾ mile posts, so we have returned to the Platelayers riverside to continue the same there. The timber fence at the top of the embankment has had the odd fence rail renewed and others reattached.

The logs are finally off the lineside, having been transferred to the Station Yard.  Many trips with the dumper were required to do this. 

At the Station a new picnic bench has been made, whilst the materials for a second has been sanded down and stained (to give a different look).  The grass has had another cut but fortunately, with the cool weather, it’s not growing too fast – yet.  The gardens have continued receiving TLC.

The shock van (the second van in the siding) has had the station side and south end cleaned down and primed.  The side has also had 2 undercoats and its first top coat applied.

Weighbridge Teas have had another good weekend, with hot chocolate and ice creams selling well.
