Here we are - Mid Summer already and the first Wednesday for a long time that the steady rattle of the cement mixer could not be heard. Brick Layer Brislin was sucking on his nicotine inhaler more than usual! Nevertheless what a productive day, with 10 volunteers ( ex myself part time) undertaking some sweat provoking tasks. Having Graham Morrison and the JCB on site allowed us to carry out some major work.
In a chronological order then:
A new drain was installed across the trackbed from the north end of the platform wall and into a soak away by the centre drain. It an impressive piece of plumbing on a grand scale and I am sure it is going to eliminate a Winter flooding problem we had in this area.
Ron in a desperate bid to kerb his bricklaying withdrawal system took the strimmer down to the proposed entrance to the car park and cleared the area . This will allow the Highways Survey Team to do their stuff(technical term).
