Just a very short blog today. Several more things to do to the signals at Broadway. Signal 39 (platform 1 north) needed a bit of fettling. Malcolm did a trial fitting of the disc to the ground signal to ensure that the red stripe was exactly horizontal - luckily OK ( sorry no picture as I was up on top of the wooden signal at the north end). The disc won't be left on until the signal is fully operational.
Then out with the paint brushes to touch up bits of scuffing, bolts, etc. And finally removal of the scaffolding - any further work up top can be accessed via the signal's ladder. Here's the finished job (well almost)
Bit more touching up of the paintwork on no.38 opposite and here are the pair waiting to control the headshunt and siding
There will be some further work required here at no.39 to instal vertical pulley wheels to orientate the signal wires to the correct alignment - another concrete block to cast!
Meanwhile back at the south end we are giving the wooden post another coat of white gloss - this is the fifth coat of paint it has had now so should be well protected. Keith L makes a start at the top - having got up there we saw that the safety hoop needed a top coat of black gloss - what shall we do first , black or white?!
Finally, Carl S has acquired a large metal cabinet which we have manhandled into the locking room. This will be used for the storage of tooling. It is extremely useful to have a kit of basic tools at each signal box.
