Rail Recovery

Unfortunately they’re a bit blurry, but these pics do show the first two rails to make it to all the way to Maldon Junction (well as far as the rails allow anyway).

It’s been a massive couple of days, first preparing Moscript Street then towing everything stored between it and Stephen Street over today.

Given Moscript Street is a far bigger gap, we’re using a slightly different approach where we place a clamp on the rail that allows us to project the rail much further in front of the digger – it worked very well but did slow us down a bit.

Next week we’ll tow today’s rails up to the junction, then repeat the process as we move the next lot through from Stephen Street. It won’t be long before we start to load the rails onto trains for relocation to their final homes.
