Another busy day, with a further 32 concrete sleepers installed and a thorough tamp of every sleeper under the new rails.
We’ll leave the speed restriction in place for the weekend to make sure the ramps up to the 80lb, near the digger in the picture above, hold up, given they’ve had a 50-60mm lift.
If they stay put we’ll return this section to the current line speed of 20mph next week. Once we’ve completed a long enough section we’ll lift the track speed back to our maximum line speed of 25mph.
Next week we’re planning on being in Castlemaine Yard, but check back closer to the dates as things could change with Covid.
