Push Gathers Steam to Restore a Historic Loco
J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
Another eventful day, with concrete sleepers.
It started off as a sleeper train, with 176 sleepers dropped off at curve 11, we had all this including the marking up of the 1 in 3 to be replaced well finished by morning tea.
Around 60 sleepers were unscrewed, had anchors removed etc… ready for the concrete to go in.
32 were inserted and tamped up ready for tomorrow’s trains at a very reduced speed (8 km/h).
We’ve distributed about half of the concrete sleepers on site, the rest will occur Thursday or maybe Friday morning.
Although Thursday is potentially wet we’ve taken a gamble and plowed on, as if worst comes to worst we won’t really have a lot of work to do keep trains running over the weekend.
Rain / hale or shine meeting at Maldon 8am on Thursday.
