A project working bee was held on the first Wednesday and Thursday of December, to replace a number of 24’ lengths of rail in front to the platform that had corroded foot damage.
Wednesday morning saw eight OTHR volunteers on the day, de-pinning sleepers, moving the old rail out and moving the newer rail in place. After bolting the newer rail to the existing rail ensuring the rail was in gauge and was pinned 1 in 4. Also, the Station building had a bit of a clean on the platform side and inside to remove the dust generated from a month of construction rebuilding the platform retaining wall and coping edge.
Thursday morning saw four OTHR volunteers continue re-pinning the newer rail and recover another 4 lengths of rail from another part of the yard, ready for Saturday’s mini working bee.
