Track Renewals Almost Completed

Replacement trackworks right outside our Loco Shed is now nearing completion, with all rails in place on roads 1, 2, 3 & 4, and first fix ballasting done on roads 1, 2 & 3.

Concreting work has been completed where the Loco Shed track joins onto the new tracks outside the Shed, and this is now sufficiently hardened to permit movement of stock out of the shed onto the newly relaid lines.

Stock movements were carried out yesterday, and No. 10 was moved from Road 3, where she has been stored over the winter months, to Road 1 in the Loco Shed, which is more convenient for the Boiler Inspector.
