It's been quite a while but here's a bit of an update.
All the concreting is done. All steel work errected aside from the last 2 bridges. Rail decks have been completed on bridges that have the steel work upright. Full beam decks are being prepared for the final 2 bridges for fitting once the steel work is in place.
Being cleared, almost complete and ready for road bed grading.
Works continuing on the latest BW in the shops, 1BW and 34BW are pretty much complete aready. External timber almost complete on 32BW. (think that's the current one)
A ZD is almost complete on the exterior. (again cannot remember the number)
Work is progressing on 58MT. Focus is on the guards end currently. Steel work has been repaired and new timber framing for the ends is done. Flooring in the guards end is almost 1/2 done. Repairs to the side entry steps have begun with the fabricating of new mounting brackets started. Materials on hand for new steps to be constructed.
Some pics of the Walker trailer works below.
Condition of frame etc once the panels were removed....... Coupler pocket smashed and has been replaced with a spare.
Just a bit of corrosion.
And complete with new panels.
Frame being constructed.
Worst of the side step brackets.
Best of the side step brackets was cut off and templates made for a new one. Now in 3mm steel rather than 1mm! And we cannot work out what the roughly cut hole was for. Not there for access to nuts/bolts on the inside, doesn't relate to the grab rails and it's completely covered by the side panels when they are fitted. All 4 brackets have them too.......
Welded into place. Also now has captive nuts rather than bolts trying to hold in 1mm steel. Should last a little longer. Steps are being done ahead of other steel repairs so we have easier access to the interior........
And primed. (I'm not a painter hence the runs.)
