Today saw the 26 length of 80lb inserted and fastened down in curve 16. Unfortunately today weather wasn’t so kind, getting very hot and sticky by the arvo.
A couple of pics of the job with the rails bolted together, plated and awaiting gauging and spiking.
We’re almost done by this stage, all but a few of the joints spiked down, the spiking machine in the foreground awaiting its next job while Rolf wanders up to start the joint spiking.
And of course a competed view towards Maldon! We’ve still got around 25 more rails to insert in this leg, which will occur in a fornights time.
