New Pedestrian Rail Crossing on ASCR Part 2

Post by GAP » Mon Nov 07, 2022 7:53 am

I had the job of driving the diesel loco transporting the track section and the sleepers, this gave me enough logbook hours to entitle me to sit the drivers exam for my diesel driver's ticket.

Fabricated rail crossing section loaded onto train for transport to new crossing site.
The steel on the inside of the rail is for the flangeway in the concrete and will be removed later when concrete has cured
