3rd January 2022

We hope you all had a good New Year and are now ready for whatever 2022 has in store for us all.

Our fibre trenching works have continued in Northdale between the 16½ and 17 mile posts, steadily working our way northwards.  The west lineside ditch, which was blocked by grass and weed, has been cleared out as we worked our way up the valley.  At the access point, where the forest road meets the railway, work has been started to improve the gradient and the drains.  We still have a few challenges to face here including trying to find 2 culverts, which are probably blocked, where there is a large area of standing water.

Works will be continuing here, both midweek and at weekends, and we hope to reach the summit by February – weather and additional works permitting.

Back at the Station, the timber cladding has been measured up and marked ready for fixing to the steel container.  The lineside ditches just north of the level crossing have been raked clean of dead grass, weeds and obstructions.
