Point Work

Yesterday's pictures of Balfour Beatty at work. The north bound depot crossover point and the depot entrance points received attention. Both of these are single bladed points with a dummy mate. In each case the worn grooves in the dummy were filled with weld and then ground down to produce a level surface for the wheel flange.

2. General view looking southwards. The depot gates which it is planned to repaint this winter can clearly be seen.
3. The completed point dummy on the left.
