Wakebridge 18th November - part the second

1. Looking southwards. Most of the shuttering is in place with concrete due to be poured on Thursday. On the right of the picture is a traditional jim crow - I spent many hours as one of a small team manhandling these. I am waiting see how rails are bent in today's world.

2. Seven cubic metres of concrete.

3. The concrete pump can be raised, lowered and rotated by remote control. The guy on the left with the yellow jacket has the remote control round his waist.

4. Wet concrete. The space is where the drain box for the points will be.
Oh dear it looks as though both of the warning signs have been damaged! Perhaps they will be replaced with more attractive signs.Posted by Picasa
