Track Renewal Progressing Well

Work to replace all four “roads” leading up to the Loco Shed is continuing apace, with most resources being spent to ensure this work is completed as soon as possible.

All of the old track has been lifted, and the entire area cleared of any remaining detritus, and already, the basis for the four new lines is in place. All of the sleepers are down, the rails are in place in their chairs, and we have fixed the chairs in place on one line.

Some rails have still to be cut in places, and then holes for the bolts to hold the fishplates in place will be required to be drilled, but is is proceeding quite nicely.

If you wish to assist in this rewarding task, please get in touch with our Chairman, Archie Thom, on 01292 269 260. The more people we have to help, the quicker this important task will be completed.
