It's only 3.5 degrees, to cold for any block laying. There's an icy wind blowing from the north.
But hey, there are Race Trains !
Smoke curling from the signal box stove pipe, and a distant whistle, had yours truly racing for platform 2. The first had already gone, but the second was right behind.
This shot was almost spoiled by a phenomenon well known to the railway photographer. You set up your shot, no one's about, it's a perfect scene. Nothing can go wrong now. Then, at the very last minute, the unpredictable arrives - a man with a lawnmower emerges on the opposite platform! Argggggghhhhh!
Lawnmowerman is safely hidden behind the loco...
No news on the Hayles Abbey front this week. We are waiting for the site container to be delivered. The track has been tamped, so we are ready to start.
