ABBEY COVE

Unfortunately due to ill health the original lead worker on this project will be unable to continue with the development. The lead has now been taken by ne of our newer members who has been forging ahead with the work.

WE are  sticking to the  original design which has a small terminal station on an upper level (track work all now in place as seen in the right top of the picture to the left), and a goods facility for the fishing harbour on a lower level.

The track work for the harbour has been laid in place. However before it is permanently fixed to the base boards  we are waiting for a delivery of cork to place under the track. Delivery is promised for next week.

The picture (left) shows the extent of work so far,
