Track rearrangements

Photo: BM

This week saw the completion of the improvements to our loco shed access trackwork. The work entailed the installation of two new points and alteration of the trackwork at the shed end of the platform, enabling much quicker loco changes to be made. We can now access shed roads 2 & 3 straight from the platfom, and shed track 1 from the middle road in the (Ashmanhaugh) station. This will help to keep loco changover delays to a minimum on Open Days.
We tested this new arrangement during our running day today when several of our members got more experience in driving , guarding and signalling.
