Shovelling Ballast - 22nd February 2020

Saturday saw a small but pretty determined squad ignore the pretty horrendous weather forecast - heavy snow showers and gales.
Hopefully in the not too distant future the above "bomb site" will once again be an inspection pit inside a shed!

To keep us warm Georgie got us to dig up the excess ballast from the mainline and barrow

it into the "6 foot" between the mainline and the recently created siding, above Roger and Graeme at the start and end of the tiring day.
Fortunately Roger had got the Brakevan stove toasty in the Dock at Boat of Garten, so we had extended breaks throughout the day in comfort, above the Diesel multiple Unit pauses at station enroute to Broomhill.
