I wonder if this was the last sleeper to spike?
Angus, Andrew, Fergus and John braved the elements to assist Georgie and Stuart in drilling, spiking, packing and boxing in the last of the sleepers, finishing off the major spot re-sleepering exercise since the 4th July 2015 from milepost 89 and 3/4 up to and just beyond the 91 milepost. I don't recall exactly how many were changed but I do know that all concerned are glad that it is finally finished.
As can be seen from above the opportunity was also taken to tidy up the formation and cess. Thanks to John Wood for information and photos.
