Switch Work half-day and full day Sunday - 7th & 8th March 2020

After another pesky meeting interfering with PWay Weekend (all be it, the Strathspey Railway pre-season get together, well attended with around 80 there) work commenced after lunch, with Ian, Martin & Mike plus Andrew started fixing down the high rail which had been set earlier by Georgie ..Roger joined us as did Georgie a little later, she had got detained after the meeting.
Then the low rail switch & the crossing were set & fixed down as was the cut to length plain rail all could be lifted in now Georgie says
