19th of October
Malcolm, Allan and myself went out on site to check 225 and to continue measuring 53.The good news is 225 does not leak, the bad news is, some of John's hay bales fell over and broke another window, gawd! We will secure with plywood, as well as the other window.We saw John and he is still mulling over our proposals and is now talking about a 40 year lease! WE say, what about ownership of the bits we add? WE will send our legal standard document and once more it is horse, or should I say tram trading time. This is enough to make me consider just modelling trams.All the while 53 rots and still, I am afraid to say, has active woodworm in some areas. We did some more measuring, but we couldn't help ourselves, we ripped up some of the flooring to check the steels. This has all been recorded, so it was to see how 53 is put together. The top web of the steels does show some rust, but Allan M will do a thorough assesment of them. The wooden floor is mostly gone and will need to be replaced. I continued underneath measuring the steel frames.
