    Work has started on casting the supporting blocks for the platform sections. Plenty more to make so the cement mixer will be busy for a while. Details on the blog.

    Like many heritage railways we rely heavily on our retired members for midweek sessions. The advice to stay at home for the 'less young' will have a big impact on our railway. As already noted CHR has declared there will be no public operations in April and probably beyond that.

    Inspite of all of the gloom a small group of volunteers were determined to bring a smile to your faces. Here are the first sleepers going down on the station approaches.

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    Nice load of new rail.
    Is it 54 or 56 kg/m 110 or 113A in old money.

    We had a similar delivery a few weeks back but mixed weights.

    It's new 113 in old money. That's what the paperwork says.

    We hope so! It's probably going to get an extra few months due to the delays in construction.
