Re-Sleepering continues 5th & 6th December 2015

Reasonable squad on the Saturday, but due to the persistent heavy rain (forecasted), Georgie wisely decided to instead spread the accumulated waste ash from Locomotive 46512, inside the Roy Hamilton Carriage Storage Shed, forming walkways. I believe it poured rain all day and due to poor lighting, trying to get photos inside the Shed is hard on a fine, sunny day - hence none.

On the Sunday it was cool but bright, although the above rather hurried photo doesn't convey this.

Myself, Georgie and Stuart managed to drill and spike a good number of sleepers up to Tullochgorum No1 Level Crossing, we then went back, packing and tidying the ballast until darkness prevented us doing any more. The end of the re-sleepering is in sight honestly! Looking closely at the photo the 2nd white mile post is the end.
