We break open a pallet of reds, bring them to the edge of the embankment, hand them down to Brian, he puts them on the PWay trolley (which holds exactly one pallet full) and then we roll the trolley along to the site where they are most needed. Your scribe prefers to handle bricks by armfuls; Brian and Keith decided on throwing them, but an instant of inattention, and you get a brick in your ear. Just warning you, Keith ! That happy smile could quickly turn upside down.
Here John S calmly carries on unperturbed, pointing his recently laid brickwork, as the Manor rumbles around the station. Handy, those milk crates. You can stack them, and enjoy a stress free bit of pointing. Notice that we point behind the platform as well, in the bit that will be back filled. Very proud of our work, we are.
We have now almost completed the 110 - 130m sections. 110m is signed off, 120m has two courses of corbelling laid, and 130m is up to corbelling. Sounds like a lot of corbelling to do next time then.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, a small team will be pegging out the next 2 - 3 sections, and will lay a few corbelling bricks. Next Monday we can lay more corbels, and start on sections 140m and 150m with a first row of blues and some concrete to even out the foundations.
Good progress today, well done chaps !
