We also continue with the work down in the car park. The final challenge was to bring up onto Site as many of the good Mythe bricks as we could. Jo had camera in one hand, hammer and chisel in the other.

Well 10 Volunteers achieved this, and more and we were rewarded with a glorious sunny afternoon.
|Looking North - soon you will see the Signal Box rising on Platform 2|
The work completed so far on the Signal Box foundations is a work of reinforcement art. The Contractor did not manage to finish the shuttering at the rear of the base and this will be completed on Monday. On the same day the Building Regulations Officer will be along to inspect the work and sign off, ready for the concrete to be poured on Tuesday. In just over a week we should be able to start laying the first courses of bricks. Yippee is the word I'm looking for!
Fairview delivered the first load of engineering blue bricks to start the work. The equivalent backing reds will be delivered later this week. As you can imagine the BAG bricklayers can't wait to get started! I will post an interim report on Tuesday evening.
In summary we had a very productive and enjoyable day with much talk in the mess room about the signal box build and footbridge refurbishment.
Thanks to all the visitors who came today, all interested in Signal Box progress. The BAG are proud of our their achievements, so please come along and support us!
