Woodpecker Lodge basking in the sunshine, with planters full of Primulas.
This wonderful weather is enabling us to crack on and yesterday we put all the signals back out, ready for testing via the new signal box control panel, maybe on Wednesday. We have erected a new fixed Distant on the back straight gantry going out, to 'protect' the Birchwood Junction area, and fitted a sight board on the Birchwood Junction Home.
We have sorted ''Isabel's' low 'undercarriage' problem and she is Ok now, having had a trundle round the circuit behind Nelson. General's brakes are being tweaked.
The path across to the pit area from the Laurel Sidings shed is finished and we are expecting the timbers for this structure to be delivered this week. Track continues to be 'tweaked, and various painting jobs are ongoing.....phew!!!!
We even managed to find some time to do a bit of sailing last Wednesday !!!!!
Who would have thought that we would be enjoying an our lunch outside in the warm sunshine on 19th March !!!!!!
