Rocks Railway Restoration
Weekly progress diary from beginning of March
Springs on the rails being uncovered
4" Pin holding rail every 28" (and buffer springs and bent bolt to hold wheel stationary presumably
before the BBC built the wall)
2 cables per wheel, the other end presumably goes to the bottom
Maggie's Mike clearing the rails by spade
Lyn clearing the easy way
Maggie clearing the hard way (by the springs). The wheel has now been painted.
Thanks too to Severnside Mike- whose head is shown (he provided the modern photos for the exhibition)!
6 rails uncovered, the pile of rubble is getting taller- will be
conveyered out in due course
6 rails uncovered and visible from the pavement
Manufacturers name on vent outside top station
Prisms of clear and violet glass to reflect more light into top station
You can see the original colours of the top station. There was a waiting room up here.
Bricked in alcove in top station- is there anything behind it?
