|Brian and Dave - a couple of block shifters
The task requiring the most muscle was the shifting of the remaining concrete blocks from the northern end of the site down to 2C. Fortunately we still had the 6t dumper on site which made the task that bit easier.

The other main task of the day was the further clearance of the embankment behind 2C. Recent rain seems to have made the vegetation grow extremely rapidly.
Nevertheless where its clear it really looks most impressive. Here Jo was able to take a good panoramic shot from on top of the newly cleared embankment behind platform 2C.
What a great shot this is, showing the newly laid foundation for 2C and the nearly completed 1C. Two things of note : the transfer of the spoil extracted from 2C and placed behind 1C was a brilliant job. The soil extracted was profiled up into the embankment behind 1C. The other thing of note is that the concrete footings for the 2 centre drain catch-pits were dug, laid and temporarily refilled. The drain itself will be laid in the next couple of weeks.

|Peter and his masterpiece
Talking of the Signal Box, Peter K has made a fine job of fabricating a threshold footplate for the main door. It looks pretty good to me Peter!
Last but not least, John B was giving the Sales Kiosk (Aka The Potting Shed) a freshen up with a new coat of paint.
Altogether a very satisfying day!
