Amongst the VGRs external contract list can now be added standard gauge track at Bylands!
A collecter of trams had the need for a short length of track be made for his latest acquisition.
It was relatively labour intensive work with sleepers laid out by hand and the rails manipulated into place with the crane truck and crow bars. But otherwise a very simple and straightforward task.
It was a strangely quick job, with the travel time longer than the work! Another interesting job and a very nice change of scenery.
Despite the rather hot weather predicted for the rest of this week we will still be installing more concrete sleepers, this time in curve 10. We won’t be out to set any records but we will try playing with some new toys. Meet Maldon 8am or site from 8.45am if you’d like to join us.
