The old wooden stairs in the bottom station installed in 1941/2 were getting past their best. They had uneven treads and some wood was rotten, but we had always maded sure all the treads were well supported. We had propped them up for years so that they would be safe to walk up. We thought we had better replace the steps and the floor over the water trough to make sure everything was tidy and safe. Work did not affect the original entrance to get onto the cars except for supporting it better. We took two and a half days with the help of eight volunteers.
