It will do the job on the extension starting next Monday………and all being well could be finished as of next Friday………….
Just to emphasise the end of the line as it now exists at Corwen East, here is the view of the railhead and buffer stop as seen from the overspill car park – complete with portaloo which has progressed along the extension in time with the work force……Toad van provides messing facilities.

The Volunteer work force continues to fettle up the track and ballast ready for the tamper to do its job.
Meanwhile, thanks to John Mason, a driver’s view of the track from Corwen East to west of Carrog is now showing on the dvd player/tv in the exhibition coach. Filmed in real time, it records the full length of track down with top ballast applied. It shows all the features and milestones as tackled over the past 2.5 years on the two and a bit mile stretch.
