"An answer to my prayer"

Apparently after hearing of my dilemma, The "Engineer-in-Chief" of construction arrived this afternoon armed with his bag of tools, (the Dremel) and work began on reconstructing Camden Platform, to allow entry of trains. Apparently due to our odd weather we have been having, the timber used in the construction of the platform (MDF) had absorbed moisture enough to make it grow and the swelling reduced the clearance. My trains can now enter the platform to detrain it's passengers. Maybe in the winter, passengers will have to "walk the plank" to reach the platform, we will see.
However, another problem has emerged, being of the same nature at the Goods Shed. This will be easily fixed when I get to it with the angle grinder in a few days time.
I will let you know later when the mods are completed.
