The great unloading!

As promised some pictures of the delivery of concrete blocks. Now normally this would prove a rather boring and hardly newsworthy item, but when you ask the driver to load directly onto 2ft narrow gauge wagons it's a bit more interesting. With each pack weighing about 1 tonne the whole train including simplex was near 7 tonnes and with the wet rails made for interesting driving, no sand needed though!

The blocks will provide enough square meters for the construction of the entire facilities extension. It is hoped that we will build up to DPC at the beginning of February and then complete the floor slab in time for opening in March.

Watch this space for developments!
