A walk up the line (1)

The new lengths of rail have arrived and are being installed by contractors. They will be bolted on to the concrete base.

Some new wooden sleepers have been added to the double track near the Bandstand.Posted by Picasa

  1. Nice to see the track being refurbished. Just a brief summary of the past five to seven years, off the top of my head:

    - Town End crossover relaid with new rails/points
    - Interlaced: frogs replaced
    - Curve beyond interlaced replaced
    - Bandstand curve: Additional sleepers
    - Points at Cliffeside replaced
    - Cabin crossing curve relaid
    - straight track approaching Wakebridge, Wakebridge itself and curve on extension relaid
    - Smith's hole packed, successfully at last

    Not bad, is it? That leaves one question: Which still existing rail has seen the longest service at Crich? I would think its the northbound track alongside the depot fan.
