Ever wonder who maintains the wonderful old Station Buildings, or paints the steps of the coaches, or repairs the fences or any number of other tasks to keep the station looking it’s best? That would be our brilliant Buildings Team headed by our Buildings Superintendent Angus. He has some familiar faces on his team and you may see them popping up in other team photographs as you go along because these guys are extremely flexible. From Derek who carries out full operational duties and is training in others, to Harry who is dab hand with the paint brush, this happy team keep things going in the buildings department with charm and hard work and sometimes less than a shoestring budget. Angus in fact has become adept at striking bargains with the General Manager. I did begin to wonder one day when he said she owed him three and half light bulbs but they seem to know what they’re talking about!
They might say that you don’t need many skills to be part of this team, but that isn’t right. Because they turn their hand to so many things here, they are actually a skilled and skilful team. However, you don’t need any special skills to join the team. Right from the start you will be made welcome and found something to do which suits your particular talents.
