Site progress

Despite Lockdown2, some work has been progressing on the Apedale site; sadly, the site is currently closed for (almost) all volunteering activities, but the contractors working on two projects have made good progress.A Water Tower is being created at the south end of the line. This should add visual interest, and make servicing steam locos much more efficient.Secondly, a large new storage shed, tentatively dubbed Aurora South, is rising from the ground. This will ease some of the storage issues on site – albeit that calculations have shown that the space is already 75% allocated!We should acknowledge the Newcastle-under-Lyme Civic Society, who provided grants for both projects.
