Today was a very busy day, so I had to defer my visit to the Train Shed until later on in the afternoon.  I began the day by moving all the bird feeder poles to reduce the amount of seed falling on the lawn (sorry, grass).  The first was quite straightforward.  The second had rusted up and required a deal of effort to separate the two parts of the upright.  Once apart, I treated the joint with Castrol LM grease to prevent the problem occurring again.  But the third was much more difficult.  Try as I would, I just could not separate the bottom section from the rest of the pole, which was necessary to knock it back into the ground.  I tried WD40 on the joint, to no avail.  I wanted to squirt oil from the bottom, but it was clogged up with clay.  I tried to make a hole in the clay with a long tent peg, but it wasnít long enough.  Eventually, I found something long enough to reach the joint and poured in some 3-in-one, but there was still no joy.  After a long time and many attempts, I managed to start twisting the two sections apart.  Phew!  More grease was applied to the screw thread before re-assembly.

I then did some staking of armoured cables to the garden lights, followed by netting the fruit bed and the raspberry bed.  After that I attended to the espaliers, snipping and tying.  By which time I was ready for something to eat.  In the afternoon, I dug out a section of lawn under one of the bird feeders and laid some block paving.  Then, after a cup of tea, I finally made it down to the Train Shed.

As is my wont, I began with a running session.  However, I first needed to hoover up all the static grass beside the mound I covered yesterday.  The first thing I did was to run 4571 back out of the Norton loops and re-filme it leaving Platform 4.

 


The I ran the next sub-cycle.  I havenít include the branch goods because that was already in the can.  So the first snippet is of 6417 with its ĎBí set arriving at Platform 3.

 


Then Ditcheat Manor arrived at Platform 2 with a parcels train from Aylesbury.  I re-filmed this as the previous snippet didnít include 6417 in the station.

 


Eventually, Ditcheat Manor set off for Worcester.

 


Then 6417 departed for Kingly, where it will terminate.

 


Once all the running was over, I turned my attention to Burnham Rocks once again.  I completed the static grass, but the picture I took was largely out of focus, so Iíll include another tomorrow.
With kind regards
Laurence

Today was the big day in that we had the U3A Healthy Aging group for the afternoon.  So this morning was all about getting ready.  But I did fit in a Train Shed session before the end of the morning.  First I ran an operating session and, this time, I tried viewing the station using a panorama view, panning from one end of the station boards to the other.  Itís all an experiment at the present, but eventually, I will want to create some definitive videos to demonstrate the whole of the latest timetable.  So I need to find the best way to film the trains and the layout.  First here, you see 5572 arriving at Platform 4 with a branch passenger from Shipton.

 


Then 80119 arrives at Platform 2 with a local passenger from Kingly, originating from Aylesbury at 1754.

 


Then Jubilee Class 45572, Eire, arrives at Platform 3 with the 1625 from Nottingham Midland.

 


After a short pause, 45572 departs for Aylesbury.

 


Then 80119 sets off for Evenbury.

 


Finally, 5572 pulls away, taking the branch passenger on to Norton.

 


Once the running was all done, I turned my attention to the scenic work again.  First I re-took the picture of the work done yesterday because I made a mess of the focussing.



Then I added some flowering meadow mix to the ends before placing the Burnham rocks on top of the mound.



In the afternoon, the visitors were quite keen to see the layout, so I set 6417 running as a demonstration.  They were keen to take pictures and even a movie or two, which was all very gratifying.
With kind regards

Today was another busy day, but for a different reason.  First, we had the window man arrive to replace the remaining five ground floor windows with new μPVC ones.  While he was here, the kitchen man called to replace the door panel for the fridge section of the integrated fridge/freezer.  In the meantime, Celia went off to her class at the gym, which meant that I had to stooge around for the workmen.  So I didnít get down to the Train Shed this morning.  But I did sneak out and pick some strawberries, nearly a pound and a half, so they are really coming into their own now.  We had the ratty ones, cut up, with balsamic vinegar and a little castor sugar, which is really delicious.  We learned to do that from a favourite Italian restaurant that we used to visit in the centre of Birmingham, now long gone.  The rest we will have tomorrow with cream.

After all the workmen had gone, I had to make a trip to the bank to pay in some bags of coins, followed by some deliveries and, finally, a visit to J Sainsbury.  However, after a cup of tea, I eventually made it down to the Train Shed.  There was no scenic work today but I did manage a running session, using yesterdayís panorama format for the station board.  First you see 4571 arrive with its single coach from Norton.

 


The 46443 arrived from Evenbury with a local train.

 


While both trains were waiting in the station, 92006 came rushing through with a full train of fish from Grimsby, on its way to Bristol Midland Road.

 


Then 46443 set off for Kingly.

 


Finally, 4571 departed from Platform 4, bound for Shipton.

 


Tomorrow, I may get some scenic work done.
With kind regards
Laurence
