Four of us at Broadway today to make a bit more progress under the Signal Box in the locking room.
It has been decided to add two more signal wire adjusters to the lines for the Direction Indicator (the most northerly signal at Broadway). This on the face of it was a relatively straightforward job but took us most of the day to sort out.
Upstairs John P fitted the adjuster bodies to the floor. This required a bit of repeated measurement (measure at least twice before cutting and drilling holes!) to ensure that the tails to which the wires attach line up with the wheels on the levers and to avoid the floor joists.
and here they are eventually poking through underneath .
So, to complete this installation we need to fit an additional steel plate to the floor channels to mount the additional 3rd pulleys.
We positioned this first to mark out and drill the mounting holes to attach it to the front C-channel the additional holes required to re-mount the existing rollers had been pre-drilled back at the workshop and matched up well.
And outside for most of the day Steve W was going through the platforms with the dumper carrying new ballast up to the north end - should give P-Way a good day's track laying work tomorrow!
