Curve 8

Yesterday saw the completion of the 82 (not 78 as we thought Thursday) concrete sleepers in curve 8.

The final biscuits and clips were in in no time.

Then onto the brilliantly dusty job of ballast spreading.

The whole length received a tamp with Rolf sighting any dips and twists. It is probably one of best looking sections we’ve done so far and we’re pretty happy with it.

We also made use of our gang to bundle all the reusable sleepers from this curve as well as from curve 10.

Next week will be more of the same, which will see this curve finished and onto the next.

One thought on “Curve 8

  1. This section was very evident as we rode over it on the weekend… looks very fresh and was nice and smooth. Brilliant work as always!
