A brief update to report that a further supply of concrete sleepers has been sorted out at Gotherington, and piled up ready for loading on to the bogie flats that were parked at Laverton.
Today the class 73 took the two bogie flats down to Gotherington, where a small PWay team loaded them up on to the wagons.
In the afternoon, the class 73 then took them up to Little Buckland.
The 320 concrete sleepers will give you 12 panels, whereas there are enough rails for 28. A start has been made at Gotherington to provide a second train load of 320 sleepers in support.
We are ready for the great leap forward !
