That’s all Volks!
An important phase of our project to upgrade the historic Volks Railway took place – eventually! – on 15th June. The prefabricated units for the new West Station and visitor centre building were transported to Marine Parade late the previous day, ready for an early start. Unfortunately, due to high winds, the lift was delayed and at one point looked like having to be postponed. However, conditions improved and with the Cheesmur team working late into the night, the 200 tonne mobile crane finally lifted the units into position with works finally completed just after midnight.
