Some great photos there Steve. We had a spin around the track behind Dave with his Singapore and some fantastic chocolate cake from the ladies in the club house. Had to shoot off fairly quickly as we were going somewhere else for the afternoon but really enjoyed our short visit.
Just a quick update on our society, we have like so many other clubs, societies cancelled meetings and public running until further notice due to the present Virus problems. Boiler testing this Saturday will still be carried out and work on the track extension will be down to each individuals choice. The extension to the ground level track is coming along a lot faster than we all envisaged even with the terrible weather that we have had. We always need more willing volunteers with strong backs and lots of energy??? Stay Safe. John
We have started back with small work parties getting on with the track extension. Just a small group and sticking to social distancing rulings. Luckily the weather has been OK for tea breaks outside with chair/bench spacing. Main land drain now installed and old bridge removed. Nice to get out of the house and have a natter whilst working. Stay safe all John
The new track extension is really coming along well. Most of the heavy digging is done (the mini digger has earned its keep), bridge removed, a land drain fitted to top of track that was prone to flooding. A large part of the track has now had limestone hardcore rammed down ready for ballast. Today we started rebuilding the bridge main retaining wall. Laid out some preformed lengths of track to get a better idea of track line. Still had time for two teabreaks and a good natter and banter session.
