Muckleford Point Works

We’ve spent today plating the down end 1/2rd turnout at Muckleford.

Previously the rails were fastened directly to the sleepers, however with the number of trains we now run, we’ve been finding that the curve leg was starting to ‘work’ and the spikes loosen.

To remedy this we’ve used sleeper plates to provide much better lateral support for the rails and also to greatly improve the life of the timber.
