There is a group here, called We Are White River, and they have a FaceBook page. They decided to rescue an old abandoned steam locomotive, which was covered in weeds and vines, surrounded by debris, on a small section of an abandoned railway line.
As I have a torn miniscus in my right knee (painful and very limiting of movement), I had a good excuse not to take up panga, rake or refuse bags, but to sit quietly above all the workers and sketch.
|The old locomotive - abandoned since 1978.|
There were teams of school children who filled refuse bags with litter and dumped it into the Waste Tech , while teams of adults (a real rainbow team) hacked away at overgrowth and undergrowth and cleared the area around the train.
|Just a few of a great team.|
