Deformed or short rails in the area of Tullochgorum have been an issue since the track was crudely laid, almost 20 years ago! As I recall the track came in panel form from sidings at Kincardine Power Station.
A beautiful frosty cold morning saw an excellent turnout at Boat of Garten where the Works Train had previously been loaded up through the week by Georgie.
Andy slackens off fishplate nuts at 90 1/2 milepost, in background looks like Jim praying in readiness for the removal of the dreaded elastic spikes!
Neil and John, supervised by Georgie try out a "new" Rail Drill, which was donated by our late PWay friend John Morley (certainly looks lighter than our old one)
2 crippled rails were changed, did a bit of slewing and ballast tidying and then dropped chippings for another days work, finished off with a hurl to Broomhill to run round the PWay train and back to Boat of Garten.
Thanks go to Steve for expertly driving our class 27 locomotive, Georgie for Leading the Gang - Roger, John, Andy, Andrew, Martin, Jim, Neil and not least Mike for supplying the info and photos.
