September work on the ALRC

As we progress into Autumn and the days start to get shorter, there are still plenty of jobs to do on the railway. Hotspur's blower was not working last week when we had a running session, so our engineering boys (Ray, Barry & Geoff), are fabricating some replacement pipework as the existing run was found to be blocked. The pruning of our bushes and trees continues and the grass is still growing ! Geoff is spending time working on his loco, Titan, which we hope will be running soon, and we are making some fencing panels to tidy up the area around the signal box where we plan to install a paving slab footpath so that we don't keep walking across the ballast here, and, as it was a bit wet this morning, we were tidying up our workshop storage cupboard so all our manuals and catalogues can be stored tidily.....
