Angus reports for Saturday
"Small squad today only David Bruce and myself. In morning loaded two trolley loads with shiny new screws also Pandrol clips and dropped off ready at base plates to be screwed and fitted into new sleepers. On returns loaded scrapped baseplates on to trolleys and returned to flatrol and back for more as trolley too heavy to push. After lunch did some packing under new sleepers then tidying ballast and cess as only photo shows" - David working, Georgie and Bruce chatting
Midweek day today
And a lot of drilling and screwing down (flattening 1 wee & 2 big batteries)
here the gauge was found to be unusually tight, so gentle precise persuasion by Georgie using back to back track jacks, Mike drilling and Angus readying the screws (Georgie did allow Angus to drill a few almost vertical holes)
