This month has seen focus shift away from Abergwili and towards our station at Bronwydd Arms. This might seem an odd one for this blog given it is focussed on our endeavour at Abergwili but they are all interlinked I can assure you!
So the end of December was a historic point in the history of the Gwili. With the last train departing Bronwydd as its starting and termination point.
From Easter 2023 all trains will start and terminate at Abergwili. Something that has been an aspiration on the railway since the extension to Abergwili was first mooted in the early 2000’s.
So with the metaphorical clock now ticking, there was no time for rest after a busy Christmas period and our volunteers were back at it in full force in January.
The first few weeks of January where centred around the preparation of items for moving. This has saw the café block disconnected from all the utilities and drains, this process was then repeated with the toilet block and GRPS book stall.
The on Sunday the 15th it was all action. With local crane firm Davies Crane on site to move everything around. This saw the toilet block, Cafe and Book stall all relocated to Abergwili, becoming some of the first permanent structures on the site.
The movement went without a hitch and we are extremely grateful to Malcolm, Neil and the team at Davies crane for their support on this project.
With the arrival of more buildings and the continued advancement on Kings Dock Signal the place is really starting to come together.
Elsewhere we have seen final agreements and timeframes reached with National Grid and Welsh Water to bring the various utilities to site.
With the piping now in stock we hope to start laying the water pipes on site in early February.
