Maintenance Day 18 February

Dry weather saw further trackwork progressed. Two further sleepers were replaced, and those laid over the last couple of weeks were packed and boxed in in ballast. At lunchtime, a broken point stock rail was found in the yard, requiring a replacement part to be manufactored and fitted.

Maintenance Day 29 January

After last week's indoor work, better weather this week allowed us to continue with the re-sleepering work. During this, the opportunity was taken to replace a rail which had a crack on the outside edge. A replacement had to be cut to length and fishplate holes drilled as the original was a WW1 rail from Nocton - 5 metres in length and 60mm high, not a common size. There are a few more sleepers to replace, and the whole length will then need packing and spiking.

This length was relaid about 20 years ago with secondhand sleepers which are now showing their age. The photos show the start of the relaying work.

The Hudson Hunslet locomotive has been moved to the workshop for minor repairs and a repaint. The Fordson Major is nearing completion with the lights ... See more
