It was decided to make a poster up to ask for help because Evergreens has suffered financially this year through not being able to hold any open days. Also always happy to welcome new people to join us, so please feel free to get in touch to find out more about becoming an 'Evergreener'. And if you feel you are able to donated a little money to Evergreens there is now an online donation facility. A link to it here - https://uk.gofundme.com/f/evergreens-miniature-railway
This is the porta-cabin which members use for shelter whilst working on the railway which looks so good now it has been repainted. Even been given a smart 'totem' name sign stating it's name 'The Sidings'. It is temporary because when funds and work force allows Evergreens will have a brick building.
The awful Covid-19 restricted just what could be done of course but once the go-ahead to be able to drive for exercise was given, a few members started to go along to Dawn Bank. With less than a handful of members on site each time they all made sure to keep big distances away from each other if they were not from the same household. Grass cutting continued. Our lady member makes a very neat job of it.
Evergreens kindly had help with the use of a roller. Flattened down the rubble that has gone down for the public car park. Thank you. PLEASE NOTE - It may not be possible to keep the blog going because of the situation we all find ourselves in with Covid-19 pandemic. Worrying and uncertain times. Evergreens members look with hope when all of our countries can once again become sociable places.
Now the second line through the station is complete, a temporary manual operating lever is being set up for the points. It will have coloured light signals. Some shuttering was made for the concrete bases of a traverser. Brick pathway completed between The Sidings and the Food Station.
