Only another 80m of rerailing in tangent 10-11 today, but a good amount of preparation for next week was also achieved.

We also cut in the closure rails for both legs and fastened them up.

And most importantly we undertook some precision trolley straightening, using the delicate tool that is the excavator. From time to time we do bend things accidentally, thankfully we’re quite adept at unbending them.

We’ve pulled the remainder of the spikes in the UP leg which will save us some time next week.

By day’s end the remaining section of the tangent seems quite manageable and hopefully by mid next week that’ll be done so we can focus of getting Curve 10 underway.

On Tuesday we’ll be meeting at Maldon at 8am or out on site from 8.30am.
