Coal Creek

This week we’ve made the long trip down to Korumburra, to help out the Coal Creek Railway.

It’s a 1.6km long tramway, 2ft gauge and once down in the forest you’d swear you were in the Tasmanian Wilderness!

We’re helping out with sleeper changes and correcting an issue with a V crossing.

Today was quite successful, four hours after leaving Maldon we were enjoying a cuppa before we set about removing the fastenings from the 200 odd sleepers and using our new grabs on the digger to remove the old timber.

It was even a bit of fun as we had use of their small diesel engine and flat wagon to carry around our gear!

Tomorrow will be onto correcting the V crossing issue and starting to insert sleepers. We’re well on track to be finished on Thursday.
