Well after much head scratching, we went back to first principles with the turntable and discovered both the lock blocks were off centre, partially due to wear and movement and partly due to being installed slightly that way initially. So once that was rectified, believe it or not we got everything to line up nicely!
So with that done we ploughed ahead with the turnout construction, of which we’ve now basically got one leg fastened down.
While we were busy with that, Rolf surveyed the track into the shed and pegged it all out ready for track building next week.
It’s all starting to come together now, with the hard work, all the setup, now complete. Thursday should see most of the construction work completed, at least along the straight legs.
Meeting at Castlemaine on Thursday from 8.15am
