Here Jim, Mike, Peter and Jo (behind the camera) return with one of two electrical cabinets high-jacked from Winchcombe Yard. The plan is to move the electricity cables to accommodate more platform foundations on Platform 2 and to further finish off the end of Platform 1.
The main expectation(hope!) for the day was to get going on some more bricklaying on Platform 2 and hope that it didn't rain. Well the prayers were answered and what a session they had!
And here they are - Bob W, Bob J, Clive and Peter moving things along at a pace. In the end 2 full courses were laid on half of Platform 2, and, looked at another way, there are only 2 courses left before the corbelling. What a sight for sore eyes. Brilliant!
If we move farther south, 3 more vertical slabs were placed and infilled on the signal box end of 2A. I am so glad to see the dumper back in action! Rod, Peter, Tony and Paul were doing the back breaking stuff involved.
In addition to this 500 more bricks were transported south for brick laying, as well as several hundred more cleaned.
What a successful day! I am back in action myself on Saturday and frankly I can't wait!
