Here is a grab-bag of photos mostly taken by Peter of activity in the last month or so.
Jan Steam up: Peter avoids the steam for a photo stop near the signal box.

Grant heading down the hill on his new Phantom locomotive
Grant looking rightly pleased with his new locomotive. It performed well on our steep grades.
Bill taking his brand new locomotive Speedy for its very first trip on the line. The level of detail he has put on this loco is impressive.
Steve arrived a little later and seems eager to get steamed up and go join the fun
No - its not a rude gesture from the bushes. Peter is indicating he has completed Four laps without refilling the water (about 4km). Alice is running in nicely.
Steams up and Steve is off for a warm-up lap
Amazingly George and Bill seem to prefer Diesel power today!
This was my view of the day - stuck with my foot in the air. Peter seems to be doing the chicken dance?
George, James and Jim putting some signalling ducting in the ground under future track.
James with the spade is our newest regular. Keen as mustard, mum said to work him hard so we did! Jim, (the one looking like he is doing the haka), is an annual regular from the UK every Jan.
Ductline from the other end. Trackage here is due to be altered to lengthen the existing siding and add an additional loop to the right of the visible tracks.
George watches on as Steve cooks one of his famous South African delicacies.
Bill and Darrel have a natter at lunch
