I have also included some from last winters trip to Spains' "Museo de Ferrocarril" .the Catalonian museum of the Iron Road this one was at at Vila Nova i la Getru, about 20miles sth of Barcelona but I think there are two or three more around the country.
Interestingly and wonderfully they have preserved the interior of the signal box, I presume it was the one at at some are of their version of a Lever Frame, obviously the spanish signalmen were not made of the same stuff as our superhuman signalers- no long levers for them!
You can see the resemblance beween this track diagram and ours! Also, just a little glimpse of the vertical locking trays under the levers- y'see Malcolm I am learning those mechanical terms.
But back to Winchcombe yard where work continues on painting up the fully welded Broadway Bracket, good old John P gets stuck in assisted by Richard C
Meanwhile Carl and Keith had returned from Gotherington where they had been undergrowth beating so Keith, now happily recovered from his bruising encounter and having got a bit left in his sprayer started to tackle the yard undergrowth ( yes, he is fully qualified to use these chemicals)
And then just to top off a perfect day, we had tea!
Just a couple more pics from the Museum visit, Andy wouldnt you like one of these!
Thats about all for now, see you soon
PS We hope to complete the new C&W phone wiring this week which means that we can also re connect the S&T phones.
