A big thank you to all our visitors (to the museum and to this page) this year, a lot of hard work is coming for our volunteers over the next 6 months to improve and restore items around the site, keep looking on our page as I will be posting updates periodically through out the winter, and we look forward to welcoming you all back through the doors on the 1st April 2018.
With fine weather in the offing, a start was made on installing the new point at the entrance to the railway shed. The pictures show the progress, with the old track lifted and the point installed by the end of the day. Next week's task will be to install the two lengths of pre-assembled track for the straight line. The old heavy rails have been put into store for future use.
Today's task was re-sleepering a point to go at the entrance to the main railway shed to connect with a temporary siding on which sits the O&K and one of the Motor Rail locos. In the next few weeks, we will install the point and relay the siding which houses our coaching stock. A job for the summer(?) as the stock will have to sit outside while the job is completed.
