The main working party in April was over Easter weekend, from 15 April onwards.
One of the first jobs was up at Tan y Bwlch, where there is a new drain chamber on the down line under the footbridge.
We have dug and plumbed in a new drain along the seaward wall of the Goods Shed in Minffordd yard. A huge benefit of working in Minffordd yard is the raw materials we use are stored there, including our stocks of piping. There is currently a significant amount tidied next to the wall in the Waggon Tracks shed to allow lines 4 and 5 to be laid.
The chamber is being extended to take the pipe further away from the wall than the old pipe.
Over the weekend of 23/24 April there was a new volunteer weekend held on the railway.
Down in Minffordd yard this involved Daffydd Thomas & David Firth give a demonstration of Track laying and Miles Orton talks about Trackside Drainage to the potential new volunteers.
