Down Yard Points

The P-way gang has been hard at work at Islip recovering 3-way points donated by the Oil and Pipeline Agency. For those of you who receive Tony Lyster's email newsletters this is the big secret acquisition. The points have now safely arrived at Quainton.

Where will it go? Well, the intention is to fit it into the down yard just outside the restoration shed, but we gather that it is just a teeny weeny bit bigger than is ideal so if you see orange suited men with tape measures, bits of paper, worried looks and a rail saw wandering around you will know why!
