P-Way Work at Totnes
The SDR Permanent Way team having completed the two projects at Staverton, the relaying of the
Staverton Dock siding
have moved onto their next project at Totnes Littlehempston. This involves replacing the points at the Totnes end of the run round loop with the point recovered from the Totnes end of the Staverton dock siding. Here are some pictures of the gang at work and rest as well as some more to give you an idea of what the project involved. Another successful project completed. -- Well done chaps, great team work, volunteers always required so if you fancy a day out contact Andy Matthews at Buckfastleigh.
