Maintenance Day 26 November

The weather has allowed good progress with re-sleepering over the last few weeks. All the sleepers requiring replacing around the big bend next to the lake have now been completed as shown in the photographs, and work has now progressed to the track at Fishermans Halt. So far 32 sleepers have been replaced, with many more to follow.

Maintenance Day 5 November

Work on the track progressed with clearing excess ballast off the "back five", the length of track that used to serve chicken sheds 1 to 5. A number of sleepers needing replacement were discovered, although the length had been relaid. Photos show that this was about 20 years ago using secondhand sleepers, so probably not too bad. Clearance then continued on towards the lake. A further batch of 20 new sleepers were cut ready for use.

Maintenance Day 22 October

With a strong cold wind blowing, the opportunity was taken to retreat indoors and continue refurbishing the man-rider wagon from Chesterfield Sewage Works. Cleaning of the steelwork was finished and, by the end of the day, a first coat of black paint had been applied.

Maintenance Day 15 October

Following the last party visit for the year on 14th October, a start was made on further resleepering work on the main line. Six old sleepers were replaced, just needing packing and spiking next time. We have identified around a further 15 that will require replacing this winter.
