This week is all about re-railing. Today was spent cleaning up the remaining jewellery from last week and dropping out the new jewellery.
Here the ballast has been scraped aside to allow for the rail to moved into position.
Sleeper plates, fish plates, bolts and steel sleeper fastening were dropped out. Here John’s placing one sleeper plate at the end of every sleeper.
A view of all the rail in place ready for tomorrow’s crew to bolt up.
