The Tuesday Work Party at Dufftown station historically tended to concentrated on “light work” i.e. smaller tasks that tend to appear further down the list of priorities e.g. painting and keeping the environment tidy etc. However, they are now involved in more major work such as the refurbishment of our rolling stock, Permanent Way and a multitude of other tasks. We can find work suited to everyone’s ability.
Works trains and training runs on our DMU also take place. This is another reason why people should not trespass on the line at any time. We do not just run scheduled services as published in our timetable but works trains on any day of the week and at any time of the day. Many people assume that if there are no scheduled services on a day then there will be no trains but this is very wide of the mark. We can and do run works trains, training runs and line inspections on any day of the week and potentially at any time of the day. Please do not trespass on the line at any time.
Anyone interested in taking part in this group is asked to contact Alistair Coull on 01542 831295. There is always work for any pair of willing hands from weeding, painting, cleaning, joinery, electrical, plumbing, engineering, permanent way, the list is endless. Come along, learn something new or share your skills with others!
