Most of today was spent preparing the rest of the turnout and beginning the installation.
But first off we level some more crushed rock and gave a small tamp to the straight track near the sheds, ready for concreting.
The gang smoothing off after the tamping.
Ian from the workshops spent the day on a jumping jack compacting the rock around the sleepers ready for the concrete pour.
The end product, looking very smart!
Unrelated, but we had some entertainment today, the lift of an X class. It was certainly the main discussion point over afternoon tea.
The first bits fixed down, from now on we should have fairly plain sailing as it is largely a big mechanco set.
Well be back all next week, so please if you’re free and interested, you’re very welcome to join us.
