The construction team continued the platform wall on the northern end. The corbelling level was reached and here Ray L (from Canada) and Colin B (from Australia) teamed up to build the final level of the corbelling - a sort of GWR entente cordiale!
Dave B John B and self started our NVQ of Surveying, by looking at the levels of the proposed southern extension of Platform 1 (Now called Platform 1A). In the distance you can just about see the end marker post which, marked with the platform height shows the challenge in building this structure. Being on an embankment, it effectively has no support behind it. We've got our thinking caps on as to the best way to deal with this. When this section of the platform was built originally, it was made as a wooden structure, to allow the sub soil to settle. It was subsequently change to traditional brick.
Finally the brick cleaning continues. It was great to see Garry Owen, his bolster and sledge hammer in hand, coming along to help us out!
