Wednesday 31st May 2023
Never trust the weather forecast , because they had said it was going to be a bright and dry start to the Wednesday which turned out to be a pack of lies . It started drizzling then a bit of rain , back to drizzle then by mid morning it finally stopped .
No grass cutting was attempted.
Monday was another Bank holiday so no volunteers turned out except for the Invisible Man who cut the grass on platform 2 .
The sort out continued , first wheelbarrow full of old cable sits on Platform 1 waiting to be transported to the Toddington Metal skip.
Ian and Ron recover some wooden steps from the scrap metal ladder , which Peter will use on the Trugs.
The first train of the day was our lift down to Toddington and we put our Barrows in the Guards van.
Its a quick run down to the skip and a dash back to catch the next train going north !
Back at Broadway, Pat was using the Billy goat to clean the platform .
Brian was testing out the new strimmer. Then with Ron they went down to the drive embankment to have a battle with the vegetation , which unfortunately is beginning to win !
Time for Pat with the heavy machinery.
Locomotives on duty today were " Pendennis Castle " and " Foremarke Hall."
Drizzle has stopped, just as Pendennis Castle pulls in with the first train of the day ,
