Working Parties in the Gauge Museum

Posted on February 28, 2019

From the WSSRT Chairman – Working Parties in the Gauge Museum, Bishops Lydeard.

It has been a long winter without trains, but the new season is fast approaching, and we will be opening to the public from Saturday March 30th onwards. Before we get there, though, there is a lot to do to refresh the displays, and to give the museum a heavy clean. So, with this in mind, I am planning in the Gauge Museum, to organise three working parties to get things in order and I am thinking of the following dates:

  • Friday 8 March
  • Saturday 9 March
  • Wednesday 27 March

Please let me know if you would be available to help on any or all of these dates, please email on this address times to suit you, but I should think we would aim to be there from 10.00 to 15.30 or thereabouts.

Apart from cleaning, we can take time to talk through the emerging plans for the museum, progress with setting up our library and the work we are doing to encourage visitors and particularly younger visitors.

I will be inviting bids for the rosters shortly, covering the period from March 30th to the end of June in the first instance.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Chris Austin, Chairman of the WSSRT
