Boxing Day

The day after the day before! Boxing Day. It looked a very pleasant morning out at first, till the wind got blowing this bought a good chill to the air where every, you stood. Chris had got the Hymek out and had been out for a trip. There were quite a few SM32 lads running today Dave was ready to re gauge the whole Track as his new loco was set at 45 mm gauge. Brian was chuffed as he had had his loco painted without his knowledge and received it yesterday.

Chris before the chilly wind got up.

Sunday 18th

A damp with a slight chill to the air today. Most of the cleaning up had been done with just the marquee to be taken down and a few other grotto things the be put away safely. Many things have been put back in the home for another year.  If you use the Sm32 route to work there are major civil engineering works going on. A half planed job, some think, seeing the drawing of the job (blue high lighter and a back of a! Not sure) Rod had been under the weather but back to normal  working on the pond. Dave was dead heading plants. There were a few other lads on-site some working on the L&B

Is this the spot we working on?

No Hi viz bibs. Under age labouring

Rod removing the pond pump for the winter.

Dave I think dead heading stuff.

After jack frost had disappeared, we was left with a really pleasant sunny Sunday morning. Some of the lads were collecting leaves for the middle area. Work was in full swing on the bus shelter, now even more pretty decked out with light and holly  The foot bridge was getting some attention as well. Allan was sorting the grotto out indoors helped by Mark B
