November open day and a late update

Gates off the posts
The fire pit
Another month, another workday, and a rather productive one. The main task for the day was burning the remains of our tree trimming from last month. Jamie, Gavin, Tom, Ben and James set about doing this and had supprising succes with the wet/damp wood. Dave spent the day on his 'little project' (he'll tell you more on that when it's done) and I think it's a great bit of work he's doing.
Fittings for the gates
Phone box
Tom, when not tending the fire, continued work on the phone box on the signal, James continued work on the aspect plate. Matthew started to strip the pivot for the ground frame signal which will hold the aspect plate, and Neil
turned over the soil on the vegetable patch, assisted James with his work, did some more garden tiding and removed the level crossing gates for renovation and primed the hinges for the gates.

/third face of SB completed
Oh, and we forgot to mention that the third face of the signal box has been completed. Dave and Keith have done yet another grand job of renovation, and have only got the 'extension' left to do, but this will be left until summer/better weather.

And to end the day, a rainbow was cast across the evening's sky. (Is it a sign?? Or maybe, more fittingly, a signal?)
