Push Gathers Steam to Restore a Historic Loco
J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
This is officially the biggest train of concrete sleepers we’ve run out to date. 272 sleepers in total, spread over 5 wagons.
It looked very impressive glimmering in the early morning dew.
The drop out points were up the hill from Farmers Bridge. Around 300 are needed here to complete this straight, so once we’ve got this lot distributed we’ll know exactly how many more are required. Needless to say unloading all of these took quite a few hours.
The afternoon was spent preparing for re-railing next week. Lots of fish plate lubrication and bolting up into stings as well as removing the last few anchors.
We’ll have gangs running Tuesday, Thursday and Friday next week for anyone interested in joining.
