Some of the guys were in action fitting the Winchcombe weighbridge with a new roof, while the larger part of the gang came to Cheltenham.
Here they spent some time adjusting the gates near the signal box, and then some preparatory work alongside the fence on the platform 1 side, where the second new footpath is going to be laid.
On platform 2 the plinth headers were being added to the low wall constructed last week.
This area of the newly constructed platform 2 now looks so much different from 2015. All very modern and sensible. The remaining plinth headers have been laid out, but were found to be 16 short. Any more left over at Broadway?
Just to compare, we found this picture taken in July 2015. The B&S boys have done a great job here.
Midway through the day Elliotts arrived a bit unexpectedly to take away the excess spoil taken out of the old roadway before it was concreted in. It was loaded up and taken to Broadway to be used as infill for their platform 1 closure at the south end of the building.
A bit of site reinstatement might be nice here, with some grass seeding, and how about a pair of realistic replicas of cast iron GWR 'BEWARE of TRAINS' signs? Your blogger can arrange, as he's about to place an order for a set for Broadway's barrow crossings.
