So what fun could we have? (remember this holiday camp advertisement?)
As we have almost finished the 'building' part of the platform, it's time to relocate some of the supporting materials. Pete D came down with the B&S van, and with the help of Brian and Paul, loaded up the scaffolding planks and surplus rebar, which were then taken to Broadway, where they will be more useful.
Surplus drainage pipes were carried down to the secure storage area under the road bridge.
The blue lorry was used to take away surplus pallets, which can be made useful at Toddington for lighting up the locos.
A start was then made to apply mastic to the edging slabs. This used a great deal of polysulphide, so consideration is now being given to using a filler below the mastic, to save costs.
In the meantime, another of the team of 5 volunteers today pegged out the platform in preparation for excavating the back edgings. That'll be another digger and dumper job for next time.
Back to complete the back filling next Monday, if all goes well. Another 30 tons should see that job through.
