Viaduct nearing completion

Good progress has been made over the winter months, and some spring like weather recently has allowed photographs to be taken of the work carried out.

Currently being completed is the viaduct nearest the adjacent field, last two beam sections being installed at the top of the balloon loop, and the top screeding is well on the way. The top layer makes the base for the track to be fixed to, and includes canting to give super elevation of the track, helping wear and tear and giving a more comfortable ride at speed on the curves. Our extension is particularly curvy!

The photos below illustrate the hard work done, whilst much more work is required before we open the extension at Easter 2018.
