A big thumbs up to Paul and Steve mixing the mortar and concrete today.
Incidentally how many volunteers does it take to fix a dodgy switch on a mixer.... about 6 ....

What can't be see in this picture are the dumper loads of Mythe bricks placed behind platform 2 today. They were hand loaded in the car park, transported, and spread behind the wall. I'm pretty sure it was Terry, Jim and Steve on the sharp end of this job, but someone will put me straight I'm sure!
On other fronts Peter Q kindly brought a free load of slabs in from a benefactor. The van bringing them in, lost reverse gear so the dumper was brought into play to ferry them to the back of platform 2. Back breaking stuff....

We had a visit this afternoon from Malcolm Walker (S&T) and Neil Carr(Operations Manager) who met with JC to finalise the signal box slab levels. More of this another day - but all went well.
Finally we will be opening the bric a brac Shed on Wednesdays . This is to coincide with the signal box build which I am sure will attract many visitors on construction days.
Also a big thank you to all the the visitors who came to offer words of encouragement and support today - it was much appreciated.
Hurry back Jo with your camera ... I'm not getting any better at it!!!!
