Back in Action

 Tuesday 30th March

Yippee! Two of us volunteers back today. Needed to crack out the main sunblock - what glorious weather.

Started off the day with a bit of crossing maintenance. So a trip up the line to Gotherington Signal Box in the diesel railcar


The foot crossing that the signalman uses to access the raised platform for token exchange has some rotten boards which need urgent replacement.



The boards are covered with chicken wire mesh held on with numerous staples which have to be laboriously prised out.

It is planned to replace this platform with a steel unit and to make it a bit higher and slightly closer to the track to make token exchange a bit easier - too much overreaching at the moment which is not good with a life expired wooden structure. We have added a few more securing screws to the handrail to stiffen it up. 

We then carried on to Cheltenham RC to check that the signals and crossovers are working satisfactorily. Some of the signal wires have got a bit clogged with mud and ballast in the ends of the tube under the foot crossing by the signal box - so this is the reason John P is down on his knees to scrape it out!


Malcolm W is in the process of making sure that all the mechanical  locking positions in each of the signal boxes are checked and properly recorded for future reference.

Here we are in Cheltenham locking room writing it down. Malcolm W  is the expert on this. 


Returning to Winchcombe we busied ourselves with the fitting of the two doll ladders to the replacement CRC bracket signal which is still sitting horizontally in the yard. (probably be a while yet before it is put in at CRC). Just need some flat bar for the handrail then it should be finished.


Thursday 1st April

Volunteers Andy and Peter were in today and went off to Gotherington to replace another board on the foot crossing that we had started on Tuesday.

Malcolm continued updating the mechanical locking charts at Winchcombe box whilst Neil, Peter and Andy went off to Toddington to assist in progressing the new roadway project (entry into the station via the previous garden centre site).

Neil has placed some old concrete sleepers, and with the aid of the tele handler, to mark out the new route. Peter and Andy seen here painting them



Two Road sign posts have also been concreted in. 

We are a versatile lot!

  4. I GOT CURED OF HERPES WITH THE HELP OF DR OGU I Am from North Carolina, United State. I caught genital herpes from my ex boyfriend who never had any symptoms of herpes . I had it for 4 years ,and it has literally affected my life before I got cured. People think herpes is really a minor skin irritation, herpes has long term effects on health. The stigma attached to this virus by ignorant people is ridiculous. Most people have herpes in one form or another but they might not be aware of it. I would like to advise people on how I got rid of my herpes by using Dr OGU herbal medicine. I saw a comment posted by a woman from Germany on the internet that she got rid of her herpes with the help of doctor OGU. I was so happy when I saw that post. i quickly collected the doctor OGU contact email and I emailed him. Within 1 hr he responded to my email. i explained things to him and he told me not to worry that he will help me. i ordered for his medicine product which was sent to me via DHL. that was how i got the herbal medicine and i used it as i was told for the period of 6 days which is twice a day ( morning and at night before going to bed) .after 8 days, i found out that the herpes was no more and this was also confirmed by my doctor. if you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cure, kindly contact doctor OGU Patrick via this email ; drogugusolutionhome@gmail.com or text him via: +1 719 629 0982 .
