We have been back along the lineside burning scrub again.  The weather today was a bit damp at times, but the fires were going well and it didn’t slow us down.

The main area cleared has been between the 15 and 15¼ mile posts, giving good views of grass areas next to the river.  The awful lot of blackthorn scrub, all tangled together, has gone onto the fires.

Further north, more rotten trees have been dropped and the branches logged. The brash has been moved into heaps ready for another fire, once we get rid of the timber.

Back at the Station, the platform seats in the General Room have had a coat of undercoat and the Whistle and Gradient boards have had a sand and prime, now they have dried out.  The cleaning of the ditching north of the Station continues, slowly but surely.

From the 14th-24th of February we are having our annual Womble Work Week.  We have a packed programme of works including; culvert repairs, lineside ditch clearing, burning scrub, cutting down dangerous trees, fencing renewal, wagon repainting, platform seat rebuilding, and wagon turntable repainting.  Could you lend us some time? Many hands make light work!  Weighbridge Teas will also be in attendance to keep us hydrated, in between refurbishing their catering facilities as well.
