Turnout Construction

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.
