A template for CRC.

A wet start to the day kept the numbers down and made working outdoors very unpleasant until after lunch.  There was also a H & S meeting for some.
A refurbished bench awaiting some muscle to transport back to Winchcombe platform.
Phil spent the morning modifying an old steel cabinet which we will use as secure storage for petrol in future.  
Gatepost template as constructed in the workshop.
Roy and Jim H went to Gotherington to survey the area around Gotherington signal box for a possible future job.  
Also in the workshop Phil and Roy put the finishing touches to a wooden template which will shortly be cast in one of the holes at CRC to provide the securing bolts for a gatepost.

Finally as the skies cleared we ventured out to CRC to trial fit the wooden template and to deliver materials in anticipation of resuming outdoor operations on Saturday, weather permitting as concreting is involved.

Template in position.
The gatepost template is slowly lowered down the hole dug last week, and fixed into position at the correct depth.

Some further adjustment prior to the final placing.
