We made use of today’s rather wet weather to complete the pit timbering on the western pit.
The smaller sections of timber were very manageable by hand, making progress quite fast.
We’ve even tidied up any unevenness in the joints, caused by the warped timber, making it look very smart.
We’ve learnt plenty of lessons for the next pit, which will probably only take a fraction of the time. However it’s almost time to start laying track over this pit and connect it up to the turntable, that’ll occur over the coming months.
Thursday and Friday we’ll be meeting at Maldon at 8am, ready to undertake the 6 monthly detailed track inspection.
