In the workshop Mike continued top coating the 3 doors. Two are for Winchcombe SB and the other is for a storeroom behind the toilet block at Toddington (the white one).
Thanks to Graham Morrison and his men the Winchcombe yard road is complete. No more bouncing over water filled potholes, brilliant. The PWay gang's Landie seems to have ground to a halt and the gang spilled out in disbelief. Whaaat?
Work has started on the anti dog fouling fence alongside the new Elf Centre. The gate post at the top of the steps is now in.
Blue carpet tiles are now fitted in the upstairs room of the new Elf Centre.
Elsewhere upstairs a contractor was busy fitting out the kitchen area...
...and the cupboards/display cupboards to the rhs of this upper room.
Apparently B & S are lined up to do the lhs in due course. Presumably during a heat wave in the summer!!
However, the main job for the day was at Broadway again, where B&S are now helping on two fronts.
Austen was using the vibrating plate preparing the ground for further slab laying. The slabs have already been stacked against the wall, ready to go down with the vacuum pump parked on the right.
After laying a few rows of slabs and protecting these with scaffolding planks, Pete had a go on preparing the ground for the next two rows. There's a huge effort going on at Broadway now in slab laying, out in front as here, on the southern end behind the modesty screen, finishing off under the canopy, and still to come, the large area under the canopy extension on the northern side. Areas not slabbed will be covered in modern tarmac.
On the left you can see a modesty screen post, and a newly laid slab at the foot of it. A dropped concrete kerb in the foreground allows access to the side gate out of shot on the left. This wasn't here before, but was felt necessary due to the larger numbers of passengers the station will be handling in future, as well as giving quicker access to the kitchen door.
Mike and Phil worked in the toilets again.
Mike was busy in the Gents, where he was plumbing in the wash basins with beautiful copper pipe.
After considerable debate, and mainly due to the way the wastes were laid out earlier, it has been decided to fit modern wall mounted urinals.
Phil was fitting out the disabled toilet next door.
While it has the same heritage wall and floor tiles as the two adjacent toilets, the sanitaryware is a modern kit which exactly meets the legal requirements for a disabled toilet.
Meanwhile a contractor was fitting out the Ladies. You gents can have a priveledged look inside, but not for long....
The wash basins are not quite so far advanced as in the Gents. Here the frames have been positioned.
