A small group of us came down, working outside with social distancing, as volunteering is still allowed under lock down 2.

We have been working near the 14MP this weekend, lowering the roadway along the top of the retaining wall.  At the same time, the slotted drain pipe on the other side of the track has been lifted and levelled.  The pipe trench has been backfilled with spent stone and ash ballast, dug off the roadway.  Between bridges 16 and 17, 200y north of the 14MP, the excess stone on the roadway also helped with backfilling of the drain.  This work could only be undertaken during a possession (which the railway is currently under) and has been a great christening of our mini digger, supported by our dumper.
