Clifton Rocks Railway Restoration
Weekly progress diary from beginning of March 2005
First you buy some obelisk finials
Then you buy some steel
Then you get the zig zag detail cast by local founder Michael Brett (Bristol Foundry)
Weld it, paint it, and use a handy GWR sack truck to wheel it round to the Railway
Massive improvement from the rotten wooden board tied on with rope
Did not take much effort to remove the board!
Mike and Alan took turns to use a big drill
They then lifted it into position, used post cement and welded it to the tags of the existing railings
Job done, with happy faces
Another view, matches the existing railings well
Pity to cover it up with the Hotel sign!
