Turnout

A rather hot and horrible day today, but still an impressive amount of progress, given our small gang of 3.

We’ve fastened down both straight legs, the crossing still needs fastening down but it’s in the right position at least.

We even managed to muster enough energy to align the curve, fastening it about every 3rd timber to the offsets provided on the diagram. Unfortunately last time we built a turnout like this (VYS or curved blade turnout) we didn’t have a true diagram so we had to estimate, however a kind reader managed to dig up few different plans for us and it has made the job much easier.

With a bit of luck if tomorrow’s gang is a bit larger than today’s, we should just about see all the fastening down done, and we might even get onto the track beyond.

Meeting from 8.15am at Castlemaine tomorrow.
