We’ve been busy, very busy.
Most of sleepers have now been plucked from the roadbed, only a couple of hundred metres to go.
We’ve moved a mountain of rail, two train loads were moved today, one consisting of short 94lb lengths and all the junction rails – which we’ve stored lineside near Muckleford. Another train has been loaded, almost all the remaining 80lb and the last of the 94lb in reasonable lengths.
Tomorrow we’ll mix things up a bit by beginning our 6 monthly track inspection, starting at Castlemaine and heading out towards Muckleford – meeting Maldon 8am. Hopefully we’ll also get a train load of rail discharged in the afternoon.
Thursday will be a special day as we Invite all our hard working Civil Gang to join in helping to celebrate all the work achieved this year.
We’ll use Thursday morning to hopefully complete the track inspection, tidy up some items that need transporting back to Maldon.
We’ll head back to Maldon at 1pm to run a special rail train out to show off just how impressive all this dropped out rail really looks! If you’ve spent time on the gang this year them we hope you can join us. All welcome from 8am at Maldon (we’ll keep toy busy) and if you can’t make that you’re of course most welcome from 1pm to join the celebration.
