Following changes to lockdown rules in Wales, limited outdoor volunteering has restarted on the Talyllyn Railway. Local volunteer and Outdoor Superviser Keith Theobald shares progress w/c 6 July 2020.

Flailing and strimming activities continue to move steadily up the line however torrential rain put paid to any Outdoor Gang Activity on Friday. The rain continued into the night and was still raining when I got up on Saturday, the rest of the day was showery and very windy.

So far as I was concerned Friday wasn’t wasted because I had a number of Permanent Way (PW) Inspections to write up along with the Dolgoch Viaduct examination report. The PW has now been fully inspected between the buffers at Wharf gates and the buffers at Nant Gwernol. Ty Dŵr Culvert and the viaduct have had examinations as well – images below.
