Over the closed season volunteers have been busy all over the site. The Permanent Way team have been replacing sleepers and working on points. The loco engineering boys have taken delivery of another lathe which has kindly been donated, they then had to get another container to house it!! By the time they've got it all installed they will have a better workshop area with more space. They have also been helping with work on a Ruston diesel and one of the team has undertaken the job of getting the diesel crane working.
elsewhere the site is being tidied up ready for opening on 9th March and already bookings are coming in for Days out with Thomas, Peppa Pig and even the Victorian schools event in October, we have also got six school visits booked in a 10-day period in March - no time to sit and do nothing.
