Just two of us at Broadway today. I couldn't make Tuesday this week where the main team continued with the digging in and concreting of the rodding stools. Only 10 more now needed to reach the North end of platform 2.
Spent today removing the shuttering from the ones so far concreted and tidying up the ballast round them.
And fitting the remainder of our stock of zinc painted rodding.
Will now have to bring up another load from our Winchcombe stockpile.
Tried pulling the levers to see how it all moves so far - surprisingly free moving.
Meanwhile back in the box thought it time to practice with a few more levers and check their locking sequence. So with the approach of the DMU here are the levers set for the signals (yet to be installed of course!) for the approach to Broadway from Toddington.
Lever nearest camera (red) is the home signal into platform 1, next is the outer home (red), third from camera (yellow) is the motor operated distant and finally the acceptance lever (red top, brown bottom) - sorry the colours aren't very clear.
And that's all for this week. We now need to modify the end of the platform 2 North end ramp to allow the rodding runs to pass through - a bit of stone cutting will be required
