A quiet day at the workshop with only three of us in attendance (tho’, to be fair, Latitude was on – ed.). Progressing the toilet building for Wenhaston was the order of the day, James and Bob concentrated on the remaining woodwork while I liberally applied thinned down wood primer. With the usual breaks for refreshment and chat, we made good progress getting the woodwork almost complete and all external surfaces primed. Hopefully the mid-week team can move things on so that the structure can be made ready for transportation to the site.

Garden Railway Open Day

I now face a busy week of evening chores getting my garden railway ready for the open afternoon on Sunday 26th. We’re accepting visitors between 1pm and 5pm and are at 63 Sands Lane in Lowestoft. Entry is by donation and includes refreshments. All welcome.

Live Steam

Note from the blog co-ordinator – don’t take the header too seriously – Richard, far from being “Mr Awkward”, is one of our most skilled –  and flexible – volunteers (and pretty handy with a heavy hammer, if necessary!).And his garden railway is beautiful – running Southwold Railway stock.  Open to everyone ON THIS DAY ONLY, not just Members of the Trust.
