The latest photos show the ridge tiles in place so the roof is hopefully complete.

The remaining job would be the guttering, which in previous photos appears to be red, and the latest photos seem to show a red/orange stripe along the eves of the building. Once the down pipes are also in place, the scaffolding can presumably come down!

Bit sad only the Bridgnorth site is recording progress and no more updates on SVR Live for shareholders.

Yes, sad that there have been no general news updates on SVRLive for over a month now.
We struggle over the years to provide uptodate news of happenings on the SVR.
In the case of the Bridgnorth development we have Mr Bond's updates, two in February, two in March, being the most recent, and indeed welcome when they appear.

I compare what we do, or rather what we "don't" do, with the well organised departmental blogs frequently updated, operated over at the GWSR.

I know much more about the building of their new replica station building than I do about our build, and I'm not a member or shareholder over there, unlike with the SVR.

I think you will find the guttering is painted GWR 'dark stone'.

Things are moving now.

Update much appreciated and love the fireplace.

Just wonder after the floor is finished, whether it will be necessary to delay plaster/rendering while the interior dries out, considering also there are no doors?

Most of the scaffolding has gone, and the floor screed seems to be done. As to plastering, the first fix work has to be done first.

It was difficult to see today if there had been much progress with the initial internal work. There was nothing too obvious to be seen through the open doorways, other than that the floor screed looks complete, as madderlake mentions above.

At the southern end of the site some low scaffolding and boards have been erected around the terrace extension, so maybe that is due for some concrete soon, and a safe working area above the steep slope is required.

The ten daily images shown on SVRLive appear to have frozen.** Along with no "News" update since 19th March, it looks as though yet another attempt to communicate current happenings with members and shareholders ( the latter having just found 2.52 million by the way) is now withering on the vine.

** Now working again. Note the scaffolding has been removed on the platform side of the new building.

tigger:
Thanks for the update on the Bridgnorth website, please keep these updates coming as often as you can, or at least when you see something that has progressed and you can photograph it, now that the activity is inside. Any new concrete poured on the patio extension by any chance?

As I am sure you know, getting uptodate information about SVR happenings out to members and shareholders can be (is...) a bit patchy, witness the recent lack of News updates on SVRLive, so anything you can post is helpful, and appreciated.

With reference to the patio extension, just wondering what form the perimeter fencing will take? Because of the steep drop to the lane it will need to look substantial, and the current heritage spear top fencing along the rear of the platform may not be suitable. I suspect diners on the terrace would prefer the now commonly used reinforced glass panels, which provide both a view and protection from the wind, but using them may compromise the heritage look of the new station building, (although maybe they would not be that noticeable being glass and somewhat out of sight from the platform).

However it may be worth mentioning the interesting compromise the Ffestiniog Railway adopted at Harbour station - glass panels but with stone pillars. Hopefully this link works, you can click on the picture to enlarge -

Just a thought.

Further update now on SVRLive from Mr Bond.

Now that the rains have returned, at least most of the work is indoors.

Any news about the concrete pour for the patio extension?

With limited access around the building maybe a concrete pump from the lane will be used?
