A rather wet and cool day replaced the heat wave of the last few days. This made conditions a little easier for the PWT although the rain was unwelcome. A further 240ft section has been transposed between Idridgehay and Shottle leaving a similar length to be dealt with next week which will then have eliminated the side cut rail.
The VCT worked steadily on the Up (east) side of the line north of Shottle removing one tree where branches were overhanging the line and creating one big fire. Mike Billings firstly moved a rail for the PWT and then settled down to flailing an area to ease the VCT's clearance work and then progressed south of Shottle.
The LMSCA were on a quest to source wood for the BSK restoration and the Booking Hall continued its revenue generation work.
