Here is an update on the last three weeks of effort from the team while I watch from Adelaide.
13 Jan 2013
Bill Parker has got the water pump working reliably on the Hunslet
Bill (Williams) and Jim did the weed spraying on the track
Rod lubricated all the turnouts and linkages
Jim finsihed off his concret junction box mold
20 Jan 2013
George painted the inside of the signal box
Rod measured up for the new loco shed (This will be located down near the signal box for members locos)
Jim worked on the concrete junction boxes for the signalling system
Peter dug a trench through the steaming bays for a compressed air line
26 & 27 Jan 2013
Rod, Jim, Bill and Peter put a lot of effort into finishing the steaming bays. Only one left to do
Whew! - at this rate the railway will be in top-notch condition when I return from Adelaide!
Bill Parker takes Peter's Alice for a trail run after refitting the water pump
Rod cutting a paver for the steaming bay area
Jim is back in NZ for the summer, and knowing a thing or two about bricks gets the tricky job
Another shot of Jim working in the steaming bay area
Two bays complete!
Three bays done
