With the work on Leeming Bar station house now completed bot inside and out and the toilet block now finished and operational, the team have turned their hand to a general clean-up of the area around the station house. It has looked like a bit of a building site for some time, and wasn’t exactly an appealing first impression for our customers, but not for much longer.
The ground has been levelled next to the house and the pipes and cables that were there put underground. A new fence is being erected with suitable gates to allow easy access to and from the platform, and the old toilet container will be painted in NER livery, although I dont think it will be getting a running number.
The images below show the team at work or in some cases contemplating what to do next.
