Last day of the season, and running a steam loco as a small compensation for the cancellation of the Halloween services. Sadly, the weather didn’t really play nicely. However, that didn’t stop the groundwork team from pressing on with the foundations for the new shed – it seems that these guys are impervious to anything nature can throw at them. It does look as though they’ve built a playpen for yellow diggers, but I am told that the blue plastic things are the shuttering for the groundbeams which will forms the bottom of the shed walls. Just a quick note that donations remain very welcome towards the shed project – www.avlr.org.uk offers a number of very efficient ways to do this.
