Turnout Repairs

Even during a heatwave the gang still gets stuck into it.

Today saw us move and replace some Timbers under the 2/3 Rd turnout at Maldon. The curve lead was starting to work, so before it headed outside a safe gauge we’ve secured it!

Best of all… we got to try out our new hydraulic gauger! It’s a Bazz creation, and although only it’s first day in trial we’ve all decided it’s the best thing since sliced bread. You can see by the look on the faces, they’re all pretty proud of this device – Bazz (blue overalls – centre) particularly so.

Of course no job is complete without a quick tamp. We also lifted a few other dips out while we were at it.
