July workday

Today we had a good turn out at the signal box. The last part of the site which is not landscaped has had work started on it. Gavin, Jamie, Dick, Ben, Tom Matthew started work by moving the post for the signal to be connected to the ground frame and set about cutting a sleeper in half to mount the ground frame on.

Positions were decided and changed and re-decided and at the end of the day, the post, ground signal and 'foundations' for the ground framer were in place. The path can now be completed and finishing touches (ballast and grass) put in place.

Further down the path, there will be a display area were various temporary exhibits can be placed. 

Other work included cutting the grass, clearing out the level crossing hate post sockets and general gardening. 

It was also great to see the young members having a go in the signal box and learning about the operation procedures.
