Brickie needed…

A cheerful Wailing Wall team of Chalkie, Alan, Tim, Pete, and new recruit Malcolm setting the base plate of the parking ticket machine at the correct depth on a slab of fresh concrete. Most of the brick paving along the front of the store hut was reinstated after the power trunking was laid into position.

What a load of rubbish

A Wailing Wall project to improve the vista alongside the north end level crossing, which is the public route from the new car park, is to replace the big waste skip with an enclosed bay to hold several smaller skips, alongside the WW workshop adjacent to the cattle dock

Wailing Wall on the Gallop

Following Tuesday’s movement of the new lamp standards towards the top of the Donkey Gallop, it was decided to get the first three (of five) concreted into position, this was achieved with the aid of the JCB which allowed the posts to be accurately positioned before the concrete was applied.  It has to be said this was probably the easiest part of the operation, the two remaining posts have to be manhandled down the Donkey Gallop, under the handrail, then brought to the upright position, all without the aid of a JCB and without damage to the steps of the Donkey Gallop.  Additionally, we still have to dig a one foot deep trench between all five lamp standards to take the steel wired armoured cable and make provision for getting the cable to each lamp head.

Elsewhere modifications were made to the door hinges in the Railwaymen’s Arms, more paint was applied to the new gates under construction to replace those between the Signal Box and the Wendy Hut, and further progress was noted in the bench refurbishment in the tent.
