Recovering NR donations & Tidying at Aviemore - 21st September 2019

 
Small but productive squad enjoyed glorious weather today at Aviemore.
 
 
Peter here noting the end of railhead, just beyond the turntable at Aviemore.
 

Ian possibly thinking of charging Driver Steve (More 4 TV Celebrity) a Car Parking Ticket!
 
 
After a bit of shunting, most of the donated Network Rail rails, Switches and Crossings, timbers and baseplates were loaded onto the P'Way train by Georgie using RRV.
 
 
A Northbound mainline Scottish Railway Preservation Society charter is topped by a class 47 and
 
 
tailed by a 37.
 
 
Our own slightly older locomotive is more atmospheric, whilst Ian and Peter clear out surplus ballast from a Grampus wagon. Another non service day is required to get the last of the donated material. The Road Rail Vehicle (RRV) suffered an oil warning, so a general tidy up finished off the day.
 
Thanks to Georgie, Steve, Ian, Peter and Mike- who supplied all photos/info.
