Ballasting

A very long and hard day’s work, but we’ve got the turntable track back up and running.

Job one was tie up the last of the loose sleepers.

It took most of the morning but the old ballast was collected up and transferred over to the new track.

With some rock on, it was starting to look more impressive.

Even the point lever has been installed and it works!

A lot of lifting was required to achieve a smooth surface, still more lifting is needed, but that will require more ballast. As this is only a loco road, it’ll be quite adequate for years just like this.

The end result and a very exhausted gang proud of their efforts.
