Below: The level crossing gates from Rowley have been moved to the Colliery Engine Works for Tony to overhaul. They have been suffering from rot for some time as well as damage caused by them not fitting properly when closed to road traffic. This is being corrected as well as the gates substantially overhauled.
Below: A close up showing the steel crossbars and areas of wood and metalwork removed for overhaul.
Below: Outside Tony has started work on repairs to the final Waggonway vehicle and is seen here propelling a new bottom plank into place. Note the other new wood and missing top rail which is also being attended to.
Below: Another ‘action shot’ showing how this plank fits in place and also the versatility of the chaldron design that such repairs are possible with relative (!) ease.
