Weekend Update

The footbridge has finally arrived up from Bo’ness ready for this coming week’s big lift, what a transformation this will make to Birkhill once erected!

Back to station duties and as British Summer Time comes to an end and the long cold nights draw in, work continues up at Birkhill. After clearing the latest fallen leaf’s  from the platform, paint touching up continued to the North British coach embankment side, leaving a couple of modifications to the door and frame and a lick of paint to do next weekend and hopefully that will be it until next summer and allowing work to commence in earnest on the gardens which need a good clean up now that the cold nights have taken there toll.

Next weekend is the Steam Gala which officially brings to the end of the running season until the Santa specials start so plenty of prep to do over the next few weeks!
