Not really, today we had a film crew at the signal box filming for a new TV program about holiday locations (about as much as I feel comfortable to say). In the mean time, I continued to clean up and paint the metal work required for the GWR signal. This includes the bracket to hold it to the post, the aspect plate and the crank. The spring above is used in the cushioning part of the bracket to stop the signal breaking a casting.
Also, all of the parts for the levers for the ground frame have finished being painted and the ladder for the smaller lattice post has been returned to the signal box after painting. A small platform now needs to be made
I have also started to manufacture a few parts required to make the GWR signal work (the parts we don't have for lower quadrant operations).
And finally, today's uses for a signal artefact that you wouldn't think of, use the lense of a lamp box to focus the sun to start a fire (for survival reasons of course)
Don't forget, this Sunday is our regular work day, all member who would like to attend but have not been to the signal box recently should get in contact before turning up.
THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC OPEN DAY, we cannot accept visitors.
Sorry for the inconvenience, we'll be opening to the public as of September
