The East Somerset Railway has announced that refurbishment and construction work on their Museum building and platform has been completed.
Outside, contractors, Wells Roofing have done a fantastic job of restoring the roof & chimney, and platform two surfacing were both finished just before the COVID-19 update.
Resurfacing work was completed in time to allow the volunteers to fit station items like lamps, along with building a retaining wall before the first weekend of passenger trains back in March.
Inside the museum building, extensive repairs or replacement has taken place on the many of floors, ceilings and electrics throughout the building, bring them up to date and fit for services for many more years.
The waiting room requires more attention, with a window needing replacement and new supporting beam to be manufactured.
Walls and ceilings are having wallpaper and paint removed to assess their conditions before redecoration can begin.
