The first job was to dig a trench (easier said than done) and bury the mains water pipe, so that it does not freeze and watering of the Kitchen Coaches can be done in all conditions on "Road 6" in The Roy Hamilton Carriage Storage Shed.
As preparation/cleaning up of the Dining Train is done at this location it means the sink effluent goes onto the track at the same place, building up over time.
The solution comes from an unexpected source - the tops of two double sided cattle feeding troughs! ("Graham Sutherland has his uses") Strategically positioned on a slight slope, with holes drilled in them
to drain away the dirty water.
Another improvement at the back of the Shed, was hoisted into position today using our Road Rail Machine, having been purchased at reasonable cost from a Plant Hire firm in Portlethen is?????
In passing the Down and Up Platform renovations at Boat of Garten have been competed by Georgie and Vic the Builder.
A Male and Female toilet, for use by the Catering Staff, once they have been plumbed in and probably eventually electrically wired into the mains.
I presume the Womens' are on the right because they always are, RIGHT that is!
Thanks over the Weekend go to Colin Frost, Ray Keynon, Neil and Dan Coultier, (part of the Ellon Gang) Georgie, Mike Tough, Jim Clark the Plumber and Ken Donaldson for collecting them with a trailer.
