Our volunteers have been busy with electrical work, gardening, track maintenance, constructing steaming bays, grass cutting, fence painting and painting of some track supports for our proposed 3.5 inch gauge track.

Hooray, and at last, had some dry weather, even the sun making an appearance. Several members made an appearance too and jobs undertaken were grass cutting, strimming, site clearance, fence erecting, gardening and a hydraulic and steam test on a 7 1/4" loco. It was so good to see locos running on the tracks. The 5" Hymek had a satisfactory test on the rails and so did the 7 1/4" Feldbahn after it passed the boiler test. These two locos will be new (to Evergreens) to ride behind on open days.
