98 concrete sleepers were clipped up today, the 74 inserted Tuesday and 24 more from today.
We made use of our new petrol clipper, which the gang is getting very quick with now.
The last 24 sleepers were in just as the clipping up gang caught up. The perfect time to declare morning tea.
Our recent progress is an excellent indication that our aim of having 2000 concrete sleepers in our track by year’s end is quite realistic.
After clipping up the task was to bundle up and strap the reusable removed timber.
Some ballast scraping, a final tamp and some dip removal has left this section looking very smart.
Tomorrow will see 272 concrete sleepers dropped out for the next section. The train will leave Maldon around 8 and we’ll be out by Farmer’s Bridge from 8.30.
