Thursday was a chilly day but nontheless a lot of work was carried out by the team, mainly on Pinesway Junction signal box. CJ, Ian, Gary, Keith, Chandler and Myself (and later Dave) spent the day replacing the second window in the box. The frame had already been made by our resident carpenter Ian, and all that had to be done was take out the old frame and replace it with the new one. This was the second stage/window set to be replaced out of three. Sounds easy - but it wasnt! Our (or I should say Ian's first task, with the help from the rest of us!) was to take the old window out, this took a lengthy amount of time due to the fact the wood was so rotten and it had many, many nails in! Once we had taken it out it was back to the workshop to pick up the new frame and glass to go inside. From the pictures below you can see this wasn't an easy task, however by the end of the day the new window had been succesfully installed. All that's left now is to install the third window pane, which will be done in the near future.
