Its difficult to imagine we are half way through January already. The weather continues to be kind to us with a glorious sunny, crisp day.
10 Volunteers split into two teams, one in the Car Park and one on site, salvaging bricks from the Vic Haines delivery on Wednesday.
On site the challenge was to separate out the good bricks donated by Vic Haines from the brick samples which were mounted on boards. The samples are to be used as infill behind Platform 1A. Here we see the diehards who worked all day at this task.
Robin here standing proudly beside his hard work for the day, probably a a ton of useful ballast for infill.
Lastly we had one of the regular visits in the afternoon from Bernard Dudfield the GWSR Estates Director. Bernard was a founder member of the Railway and, having been through it all before (several times!), is able to give us a steer here and there when we ask for advice. We welcome Bernard's visits. He is always encouraging, always good humoured, always has a story to tell and, above all, is a thoroughly decent chap.
