An update from our work party on Sunday.

A good number of members turned out and completed one of those less exciting but crucial jobs. This was to relocate the large ballast pile from Mill Lane to its new home further up the line.

A new staithe was constructed from standard gauge timbers and paving slabs. It’s new position will allow us to refill it directly when a new delivery is made. This means the days of moving it around from Pilar to post is long gone.

Thank you to all those who attended.

Until next time folks, take care!
Rob Ewles, Club chairman
