With the exhibitions at Taunton and Warley rapidly approaching, the afternoon session saw work start on The Summit to move the outside track starter signal further along the board. This will give us more space for reversing into the lay-by siding without passing the signal to do so. The outer scenic board by the bridge needs to be removed so we can relocate the inner track starter too. An obvious dip in the outer track was raised, and that will be the last track adjustment until after Warley.
