Another very successful day, with 490m of rail installed (245m in each leg) into Tangent 10-11. We’re about 2/3 of the way along this straight now.
We had done some preparation here on Tuesday, however screws and clips still had to come off.
Interestingly this length, although no record breaker, did turn out to be quite a comfortable length to walk, as the truck and smoko weren’t too far away, which they end up being when we do a longer length on only one leg.
The Down leg was tackled first, all done and clipped up by 11, with the up leg then keeping us busy through until knock off time.
We have actually also managed a bit of preparation for tomorrow, with another length just needing the screws and spikes removed to install. We’re yet to cut in both closure rails, however we thought we’d see how we go for numbers as if there’s a few of us, we might tackle another few lengths as well.
Meeting on site 8.15am, come in from either Muckleford station or Sawmill Rd.
