Today’s efforts have us a big step closer to the end of this job.
We now have the straight track connected and completed.
The curved track is now located and positioned where it comes out of the turnout. It actually looks really good, the pictures don’t do it justice.
It’s staring to look very smart! You can see the track in the background that we’ve yet to build, but by comparison that will be quite straight forward.
We’ve even got the point lever fixed in and working! They’re now a real set of points.
The concreters are finished and the concrete is now sitting while it hardens. Hopefully we can wait till early next week to do a test run over it, to allow maximum hardening. The job’s really starting to look quite finished!
We’ll have a gang on both Thursday and Friday this week to finish off the track building and tamping.
