Yesterday was just such a day. The concentration was to clear the track bed for Platform 1B and to begin the work to stabilise the adjacent embankment.
In order to do this our entire store of bricks had to be moved to the opposite side of the trackbed, beyond the mess hut. I didn't realise how much stuff we have accumulated over the past year. Here Steve Warren begins the task of skimming the ballast off the track bed and shoring up the wayward wall.
In the foreground you can see the mountain of palleted bricks that have been moved. No Small task. The objectives for the day were met, which included the removal of a large tree stump and everything is ready for marking out the footings of 1B.
Here is a pic of the 1B vista mid afternoon and then by the end of the day.(Cheers Andy!)
On other fronts more brick recovery from the West embankment was achieved (I don't know where they're finding them!)
Last but not least John Simms continue the work on restoring Lamp Hut No.2. Having removed all the surface rust, John is well on the way to completing a coat of red lead paint. Brilliant!
