27th-31st December 2021

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and are now looking forward to a Happy New Year.

Our fibre digging works continues and we have now got to the north end of Northdale straight.  To aid the fire watch teams we have created a new turning point for them near the foot crossing at the south end of the straight.  The lineside here was flailed to remove scrub along the route, some of which was growing in the ditch.

Back at the Station, work is continuing on the bog van rebuild, with the interior door frames temporally set up to check the fit and confirm the new layout.  The new third toilet has been set in place and the floor cut for the outlet.

The 16¾MP has joined the 16 and 16¼MPs at the Station for a repaint and has been wire wheeled clean and given its first coat of primer.

Tidying up of the vegetable garden continues, not helped by the owners of dogs thinking it makes a good toilet (for the dogs!).  Oh and the shed re-organisation continues! Weighbridge Teas opened for 3 days this week and passing walkers made good use of it – justifying their opening even without passing trains!  They, and the railway, have now closed to the public; passenger trains return on the 2nd April 2022 but other trains will run as required anytime.  In the meantime there is plenty of work to do both at the Station and on the lineside.  Better get back to it!
