Thursday 14th April was a day to enter in the diary as it marked the completion of the Almondell circuit by Peter’s track gang. Peter, Steve, George & Archie had been labouring away for many months in all weathers to build the track panels & then lay & ballast them in perfect formation.
Our Roving Reporter was there to record the event…..

After all that exertion, lunch beckons!
