Off to Broadway again today with only a small turnout. Three of us to start with followed by Steve with his JCB and Neil C after lunch.
We started off at the Route Indicator signal at the north end having loaded the pickup with a heap of aggregate, cement mixer, wheel barrow, cement, etc
We are going to instal a ground signal adjacent to this signal, so a concrete mounting block is required. Some shuttering had been pre-prepared and was positioned after levelling out a base
A good job we brought the mixer - this took 3 large Barrow loads of concrete to fill
And then lift the post horizontally from its resting place on platform 2 to position its base adjacent to the hole. Then a bit of re-slinging to hoist it up to vertical
and manoeuvre it into the hole followed by numerous barrow loads of concrete.
And posing for the team photo are Neil, Malcolm and Carl.
I think we got it in the right way round and it looks pretty vertical - let's hope it doesn't move before the concrete sets!!
