Spring has arrived at FMR with many trees already in blossom. Work has gone well on the extension, the final concrete section has been laid. We now have the mammoth task of levelling and alignment for the whole new section once it is complete.
In the station area, progress has been made on the third track. The new point is installed and working and the short platform track bed needs preparing before track laying can begin. New signals need to be installed and some other signal wires need replacing or repairing.
In the engine shed the HYMEK is in refurbishment. The mechanical side is complete and the HYMEK is now in preparation for painting.
All this work has been possible due to the continueing support of the Engineering Dept., the Sunday crew and the Wednesay gang as well as our new volunteers.
