So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye…

The main event today, as a break from the work in the station (see below), was the loading onto a lorry of a large amount of our old surplus 30lb/yd rail. Although no longer of use to us, it has been sold to the smaller Lappa Valley Steam Railway near Newquay who will be laying it in their track – the perfect example of recycling!
