A tribute to Ross Allen who passed away
peacefully on Sunday 20th Dec 2009

This photo and the one below were taken on the CPH tour in May 2009 ...

... you can clearly see how enthusiastic Ross was!

Ross was in a pensive mood at the party held when OTHR gained access to the station - no doubt thinking
"we finally made it!"

This photograph shows Ross on one of his last jobs as a fettler shortly before he became too sick to do the heavier physical work.

Like all the volunteers, Ross turned his hand to
many tasks as a fettler - here on a rail jack ...

...and here on a pneumatic drill.

Head down & bum up was the procedure when dragging sleepers into place - we joked about being part of "Team Geriatric"

This photo and the one below shows Ross at work on the motor of the Wickham section car - a project that he co-ordinated and housed in his own shed.

Ross dragooned his father-in-law to work on the project during a visit to their property.
More details of this project can be seen on the Wickham page.
