Significant progress was made on Saturday- with an excellent turnout of Volunteers.
The morning was spent tidying up the ballast on the extension (further slewing still required)
and in the afternoon the Jacker Packer was used to further iron out the top level.
Above going through one of the five Ballast Level Crossings on the extension, meant a bit of digging out so the rail clamps can get to the rail without ballast in the way and of course we had to make the Crossing safe again immediately for our busy neighbours below.
Thanks to Colin and his enthusiastic friends from Aberdeen-Shire, a good mile and a third of Fishplate oiling was achieved starting from Broomhill loop. I can now report that the maintenance task of Fishplate Oiling between Aviemore and Broomhill was finally completed yesterday, except for "a few at Boat".....
