Today’s rather cold, wet and rainy weather, although very pleasant and wintery, wasn’t particularly conducive to getting lots of work done.
However between showers some sorting of materials recently acquired from the old Steel Transfer Yard in West Melbourne (last week’s hive of activity and hence no posts) was achieved.
The three pallets in the centre show the 5 point levers and accompanying turnout bits that are part of the 5 turnouts that we dismantled and had transported back to the VGR (I’ll grab a pic of them later this week). Some very nice 94lb small radius, hardly worn turnouts as replacements for some of our aging turnouts in Castlemaine and hopefully in Maldon if we can get the geometry to work.
We were also lucky enough to retrieve some steel sleepers from the yard, only around 25, but still a bonus.
The gang will be back into it tomorrow, this time at Castlemaine attending to some very loose fishbolts. Feel free to pop down and join us.
