A very hot day…

With a top of 42 degrees predicted, we were out and about even before the sun was this morning, a quick pic of the sunrise grabbed on the way to site.

This is what faced our small team of 3 this morning, ballast scraping and tamping.

And in time we ended up with this! Thankfully the digger does 99% of the work, which in the heat is pretty much a necessity. We were going so well that my 9am we’d scraped up rock for tamping, tamped the whole section and removed any dips and twists, regulated the ballast to a nice finish and even dropped out the left over concrete sleepers to the next part of the job!

We’re back into re-railing next week, with much better weather predicted!
