Track weekend 20-22nd of March (Friday)

Re-blogged from the WRHA. The guys at Whitrope were very busy with work on the crossover; a project that has been ongoing for many years and now approaching completion. First steps are also underway to provide Whitrope with its first mechanical signals too – something I’m very much looking forward to!

The Friday saw a number of volunteers on site with the main focus being the ground-frame and surrounding area. A number of sleepers were laid along part of the stock siding to improve the sleeper spacing in this area. Further work was carried out on the rodding run, with work concentrated on the facing point lock run. The crank was position and lined up and awaited drilling.
The foundation timber were set in place for the ground-frame, with large holes dug and the timbers concreted into position.
A number of deliveries of aggregate materials were also made during the course to provide materials for various jobs planned for the up coming works week.

About maxstafford60093

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!
