Since the last report major projects have been successfully completed.
The new retaining wall around Petticoat Junction has been finished allowing the ballast to beinstalled around the new track work. The area of Petticoat Junction now looks a picture with many thanks to the crew whom have work so long and hard.
The weekend of 20-21st May 2017 SLSV played host to a 104 people who came from Interstate and Local to take part in our Kindred Run Weekend. This function took advantage of the newly completed Goods Yard and Petticoat Junction to make the weekend a great success. My thanks go to all members who pitched into help Catering, Running, Boiler Inspections, Cleaning ect.
The new unloader has been fitted with a protective cover to keep out the weather, may I ask when you have finished with the unloader please fit the cover on the unit.
The chalk board in the Club House is being updated with “JOBS TO BE UNDERTAKEN”. The fact that the grass is being cut by a Contractor still leaves many maintenance jobs to be done, so if you have some spare time your help would be appreciated.
The alterations to the GLT track from the turntable has been started with a full description of the works to be undertaken you shall find later in this BWN.
The Gauge 1 track has had some levelling maintenance and additional points to make operations smoother.

Thank you to all those members who give up their time to help keep our Club in topshape.
