Two centres of activity for the gang today:
Ken stayed in the workshop to continue painting primer on the CRC fence panels. Last week saw one side thus painted on 2 panels.
Mike continued painting primer on the other side of 3 wooden doors which we think are destined for Winchcombe.
In Winchcombe yard a new roadway was being laid in heavy duty concrete. On the left is the S&T coach, and on the right the entrance to C&W.
At the corner of the building the concrete and tarmac stop, and the footpath becomes more heritage, using granite kerbs and 3x2 slabs for the footpath surface, all along the front of the building.
The kerbs are laid in a trench, on a bed of concrete.
The driveway and forecourt will be tarmaced, but at a later date.
At the beginning of the authentic stretch a concrete strip is laid to divide modern tarmac from heritage style 3x2 slabs.
The dropped kerb in the foreground leads to a double gate in the spearhead fencing, as a secondary access point to the platforms.
Mixing in with Pete's manoeuverings in the mini digger and the comings and goings of visitor cars and deliveries is the little Thwaites dumper bringing infill behind the newly laid row of kerbs.
Near the end of the day the row of kerbs was approaching the front door. The 4 windows in the foreground belong to the cafe.
The end of the day shot shows the run of kerbs so far. The channel for them beyond still needs to be dug out, and another delivery of granite kerbs is expected shortly from a reclamation centre.
In the afternoon a pile of new slabs was delivered, seen in the middle here.
The Heras fencing has been put back, and the infill spread out to the correct depth, ready for slab laying.
The gang will be back at Broadway to continue on Saturday.
All the heritage style toilet fittings and sanitaryware was delivered during the afternoon, a whole LWB Transit full.
Metal Micky and Phil have offered to go in on Monday and start to fit/plumb it all in to the three toilets in question. Not in one day though!!
