It’s been a long cold, wet and windy winter and it has caused quite a lot of damage to the Moreton Pit Light Railway.Â After Christmas the heavy snow falls and freezing temperatures have meant that the staff have got a lot of hard work ahead of them before things can get back to normal running.
One worker decided it was all too much for him and resorted to a cup of tea and sandwich before he could even think of starting work!
Still he didn’t have to wait for long and of course it’s always the usual faces that turn up!
The day was spent assessing all the damage around the railway and trying to get to grips with some of it.Â It’s going to take a long time before regular services will be resumed, especially with the electricity wires hanging down!
Is that the Guffinhawk up there by any chance?Â Sadly no, just a pigeon!
Of course ,it is not just the station area that has been damaged, word was sent by the Reserve Manager that rocks had fallen on to the line and the lads were sent off again to remove them.
It’s like one big happy family on the MPLR.
