Walmer Road Preparations

Today began by replacing the failed point timber at Muckleford. It was nice simple swap out the old and in with the new.

It still needs a tamp, but otherwise it’s job done.

The bulk of the day was replacing 31 timber sleepers on the approach to Walmer Road Crossing.

A few other things such as mowing, general tidying and sorting in the area was also undertaken, to save time on rebuild day (15th December).

The yellow truck also got pushed into service to transport chairs to Castlemaine for Saturday’s members day.

It was a very successful day, with some nice weather for a change!

Tomorrow will include jacking and tamping today’s replacements, in preparation for getting the levels right for the crossing rebuild. Meeting at Muckleford from 8.15am.
