Saturday 15th October 2011

What a beautiful Autumn day! We had a good turn out of 10 Volunteers today and the sun put a smile on everyones' faces, Volunteers and visitors alike. Thanks to all the visitors - Marguerite seemed to be doing a brisk trade.

The main concentration was on the 1A Platform with 4 lads bricklaying, including Marcus from Marcus Taylor & Son who donated another day of his time. Here is the action:-

Perpetual Motion today on Platform 1A

Another great job was done - the team laid at least 1200 bricks and another major section of the wall was finished, up to corbelling height. Once again none of this could have happened without loads of support.  I'm not sure how Peter kept 2 mixers going all day - but he did!

 The bricklayers ran out of red bricks during the morning and here Peter and Dave blaze a trail down from the North end where Robin was back in action cleaning some more reds.

The Wacky Racers

On other fronts, it was great to have Stuart Warnants and Chris Horn back, who continued with car park clearance, a task thats going to continue throughout the winter months.

Back to normal pics next time - just had to keep on the move today!

well done again!

Yesterday I was at Leamington station to see Earl of Mount Edgcumbe go through and going through the underpass saw in some recently cleared undergrowth on the old LNWR Rugby line alignment several blue engineering bricks strewn about... not sure what NR are doing here but maybe worth tapping someone up?
