Curve 10

We didn’t necessarily set out to do an enormous amount of rerailing today, however, we’re now only two rails short of finishing the high leg of Curve 10.

We started the day by removing the last of the screws, which took a while, before deciding that we had a large enough gang, 6 of us today, to tackle a good bit of rerailing.

This was much quicker going the previous little bit, as there wasn’t the excess of ballast here.

We ended up putting in 6 lengths of rail today, a length of 247m, which was about 3 lengths more than we initially planned, however it was comfortably completed by 2, as we had a few who had to be on the road by then.

This week has been quite successful, with 577m of rerailing completed, which is also the current monthly total. Hopefully we can beat last month’s total which was 2949m!

Next week, on Tuesday, we’ll be meeting at Maldon at 8am or Curve 10 from 8.30am. Hopefully with enough hands, we can make a excellent start on getting curve 10 completed.
