Today a short tribute to the Monday Gang – unsung heroes amongst the Racecourse Station maintenance team. On the whole they perform regular and much needed tidying and cleaning tasks leaving the ‘Saturday Specials’ to the heavier and (allegedly!) more glamourous work. That said, some familiar names appear in the cast list and today numbered 10: Dave T, Dave G, Ian, John, Mary, Chris, Dick, Mike, Roger & self.
Dave G (happily restored to action) was busy in his painting gear and John appears to have enjoyed putting up a new calendar – perhaps its those racy pictures of trains!
Mary, ably assisted by Chris and Ian, was takling the messy task of jet washing the edge of Platform 1:
(They were helping – honestly – not just standing and watching her do all the work!)
Roger was, I believe, carrying out painting tasks in the Station Buildings, whilst Dick and Mike swept up and Dave T dug out some compost at such speed the camera couldn’t keep up with him:
And finally, I continued the project to reduce the vegetation atop Platform 1 embankment to a single neat line of immaculately trained hawthorn:
Hmm, I think we are making progress but there seems to be some way to go yet!
Pip, pip and a happy Monday to all,
