We have a gentleman's agreement to to help Cheltenham get started with Platform 2. To pin this down, we have agreed to a concentrated effort on the first Wednesday of each month. Here is Bob White's report and photos.
This was the first of the monthly BAG bricklaying days. Eleven volunteers were on site and a good day was had by all. In between watching the 2 steam trains (Tank engine 5542 and Foremarke Hall) we managed to move another five pallets of bricks into position and lay some 400 plus bricks and 30 blocks. On the first section courses 5 and 6 of the new wall were completed so we are now only two courses below corbelling level.
We also did a PR exercise by waving at the passengers on the trains. Much interest seemed to be shown by passengers on the platform and trains.
Some pictures of the day are enclosed.
