We’ve had another glorious weekend, albeit cold and frosty, but working in -3°C doesn’t put us off!

We have continued cutting and burning scrub between the 15 and 15¼ mile posts.  After 3 days we have finally burnt the major patch of blackthorn scrub.  Behind this we have continued cutting down the smaller scrub between the mature trees and tidying the whole area.  Four large fires were needed to dispose of all the brash.

Further south, more trees growing along the edge of the river and leaning towards the track have been cut down.  As well as removing a safety hazard, it’s opening up some good views of the river.

Back at the Station the platform bench planks, stored in the General Room, have been sanded down and given a coat of primer on both sides.  The Whistle and Gradient Boards have been scraped down, sanded and left to dry out.  The land around the Camping Coach has also been given a good weed and prune where necessary.
