Alright gang,

I was recently talking with Graeme and he asked me to organise a massive work party for a big push to release the BIG buffet car at Coventry, which is intended for the Great Central {hence the cross posting}
Network Rail have rostered me off for every weekend in October, which i think is a perfect opportunity to get into Coventry and get the work done.

Frequently asked questions

What do i need? Clothes that you can get dirty {oil, mud etc} and ideally safety footwear {steel toe caps}

I don't drive? If you are willing to come along and help out, we can arrange a lift from Coventry railway station, or possibly even further afield depending on where you live

I've never done trackwork before, what use can i be? Trackwork is pretty simple, there'll be plently of experienced people to direct proceedings and most importantly, to make sure everyone has fun!!! We'll need people to drive dumper trucks and the JCB aswell, so it won't be all lifting and carrying.

I can only do one day? Thats ok, in the poll, select the weekend that day falls on, then make a post saying which of the 2 days you are available

I'd have to come long distance, can i stay over? Some volunteers choose to sleep on the trains overnight, but this time of the year, there is a very good B&B in town, i'll get Graeme to post the details

I'd be up for any of these dates and going up Coventry again. Possible pick-up at Basingstoke as usual possible?

Ooh, something to do...

Hmm, I'm definately not available on the 21st/22nd, so far otherwise I'm not booked to do anything but the diversions via Galton Curve.

Let us know the preferred dates and I can work around it. I could do with some upper body strength use!

We're probably gonna do some work this weekend coming 14/15 aswell, but i think i'll just go for the day on the Sunday rather than a whole weekend.

I cant make either of those days but can still make 21/22 and/or 28/29.
