The guys have done a lot of work down at Winter Creek Junction.
Loading these photos tonight with a glass of wine in my Adelaide City Apartment and feeling rather homesick for a cuppa in the workshop and the smell of oil, coal and the sound of steam through green bush!
George and Noel finish cutting the bank back at the junction. The idea is to make sufficient room for people to move about their trains without fouling the other tracks. We have discovered trains like to gather here...
Bank cut back, ready for drainage, retaining and paving
Rod, George and Bill taking some satisfaction at all their hard work at the junction
Putting up the railing at the man-entrance end of the 1/2 scale signal box
Timber for ballast boards stacked at the signal box. The tram shows its nose on the extreme right. It was a throw-together, but it sure has earnt its keep building the railway. Must have done hundreds of Km hauling materials up and down the line.
Summer has been hot and dry. The bank at the south end of bridge 1 continues to move a bit several years after being built. A maintenance headache.
Peter is making good progress on the Baldwin.
Team have been busy putting the pickets up.
Peter tries out one of Georges chairs. Where's the hammocks?
