Play rained off last week, but a team of 9 (yes 9!) turned up for duty today. I hope Henry Howard - GWR Chairman, who came along to give a pep talk, was impressed!
Spent an enjoyable day cutting back the boundary line towards the volunteers cabins. This is somewhat in anticipation of building the 850ft platforms required for 10 coach double headed trains. One has to hope that someone in a high place feels able to justify and deliver such a grand scheme. From a volunteers point of view its setting an unassailable mountain to climb which is daunting, especially when no money at all is being made available to fund the Broadway Project.
Regrettably the project, despite the best efforts of Alan Bielby, finds itself stagnating now, having no apparent strategy, or ordered plan and lacks a trusted champion. From a volunteers point of view all seems to be smoke mirrors and clandestine dealings.
