Well apart from being wet… Which wasn’t really forecast until this morning, we had a very successful day.
55 timber sleepers have been replaced between Bendigo Road and Curve 21. This very short section of track had the poorest sleeper condition of anywhere on the line but not anymore.
Despite the rain and our small group of 3, all 55 sleepers are fully spiked, only requiring a tamp sometime soon. I pretty big effort really, considering there was no preparation.
Tomorrow is a workday, but it will largely consist of loading concrete sleepers onto wagons. You’re welcome to join us, however the weather forecast is for wet again, so probably an excellent day to practise some more social distancing.
