An update on our re-opening. We will be re-opening the museum on Sunday 1st August. A booking system will be in place to ensure that numbers are limited to allow for social distancing. Further details will be provided soon.
With most volunteers away, only a few jobs were done. Down the line, work continued on remodelling the area around the old tipping dock. The sharp set of points are due to be replaced with a larger radius version which requires some of the cutting side being removed. A chance to use our dump truck for the first time for several years.
A further modification was made to the air brakes to replace the palm couplings in the air lines, which can be difficult to couple, with ordinary quick-snap couplings.
