Only internal trackwork this week. In readiness to put Locos back on rails. See area one.

We have a petrol driven impact drill on hire to trial it this week. This is designed to take the backache out of screwing down the brackets. Come and have a go with it , it’s a one day only opportunity!

We will be laying further track. Additional sleeper lifting nips have been purchased to allow 8 people to lift a sleeper without strain.

Schoma Locos.

  • Workshop– No work this week on locos.

Area one: Ring 1 to 3 Moor end roller door

  • RE-SET the sleeper gap distance to 2 feet between sleepers. This has been checked and is enough for the weight of our locos. Lay additional rail to complete existing sleepers. Fit fishplates (Nuts on outside) please grease the fish plates before fitting.

Area two: Ring 3 to 6

Area three: Ring 6 to 9.
