A Bit of Carpentry

Tuesday 28th Nov

Five of us at Broadway today to carry on with the fitting of rodding.
Malcolm and John P crumpled themselves in the tunnel to connect the three southbound cranks. All seven are now
complete. Continuing with installing t hi e rodding up the platform will now have to wait until the ballasting and tamping is complete.

Looks quite colourful

This now leaves us with the carpentry bit. Six more slots to cut in the rabbit proof fence for the rodding - a bit of accurate marking out required followed by careful cutting (I say careful because these planks are getting a bit flimsy with all the slots)

And then put in position to see (thankfully) that it fits pretty snugly over the rods

Next step while we were in carpentry mood was to line up the positions for slots for the signal wires. With the aid of some blue nylon rope attached to the pulley wheel (for no. 2 signal position initially) and then passed out across the tracks to a pulley wheel on the opposite side this allowed us to set the best alignment parallel to the sleepers  and then to mark the woodwork for cutting:

 This was repeated for another 10 wire positions. To ensure that  these wires pass across the tracks without fouling a bit of adjustment of the sleeper positions was needed (we did refit all the clips!)
John P in charge of drilling and George cutting the slots down to the holes

And a view from the inside with the  board re-fitted


Should keep the wildlife out! 



  1. Whilst it keep the bigger animals out it looks like a mouse might still be able to squeeze through. Will there be a vacancy for a station cat I wonder !
