Preperation for Rails on the otherside 2nd January 2015


As only described in last entry, decking boards raised and turned, still to be cut to size and secured to bridge. Height of ballast ramp not really noticeable in this shot.

This morning Vic the Builder assisted by John, finished off the rough and ready but effective ballast retaining wall, just in time!
As between service trains, Georgie managed to relocate the Road Railer from Boat of Garten to worksite and shuttle back and fore unloading a few tons of ballast, previously stored in the above wagon.
As the Sun goes down and the temperature drops even further, job nearly done for the day.....

  1. Fantastic effort by all involved and a real treat to view the progress these photos depict from the comfort of my armchair in Bristol. Keep up the good work!!
