Ray Hedley is wiring the new workshop in the restoration shed, and will install the Centre lighting around the main areas in readiness for the Santa Steamings. Work continues on the roof of the second refreshment coach which will be followed by a general tidy up of this useful vehicle including the interior and new heaters. In addition we are pushing ahead with all the usual ongoing maintenance and are always on the look out for plumbing, wiring, roofing and heating experts or handymen.
One new project is the erection of the old BR P Way hut which has stood for many years between the station and the road bridge. This has recently been replaced by a portakabin type structure and we have managed to secure the old building. This will be re-erected by the up yard gate, for the time being, and will be used as a store, workshop, and anything else that we can think of. We are sure that before the building has been erected Simon 'the mole' Field will have extended the internal telephone system to it!
On the good news front I am sure you will be pleased to hear that the ex LT Watford water tower that has been in the up yard undergrowth for many years is to be erected on the high altar adjacent to the up yard platform. A new tank for this is being made at the time of writing.
