Push Gathers Steam to Restore a Historic Loco
J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
Today was spent tidying up some more anchoring jobs, with the down till towards Sawmill Road (Curve 9) the first location.
We employed the same process as yesterday for installing the anchors. Stopping after this curve was finished due to a lack of shims. So we’ll have to produce some more shims.
With Anchors done the excavator sits awaiting the next turn of duty.
The afternoon was a similar affair, this time installing 80lb anchors on tangent 14-15, which now means our latest re-railing is complete. (forgot to get a pic!)
We also squeezed in some re-railing preparation, removing 60lb anchors and dropping out sleeper plates for the next section, tangent 15-16.
We’ll be out preparing to install concrete sleepers on Tuesday, any extra hands greatly welcome. Meet Maldon 8am or Midland HWY xing 9am.
