Track Bash!

Track Bash!

Published: 19th November 2013

The winter season of Track Bash weekends has just got off to a solid start with a grand total of 140 replacement concrete sleepers being fitted on the Boscarne branch at Crabtree Lane. On this particular section of track the existing concrete and wooden sleepers were almost life expired. Their replacements should now ensure a much smoother ride, and a lot less repair and maintenance.
 
15 volunteers turned out on the Saturday (9 November), and 13 on the Sunday (10 November). The weather was favourable, the catering excellent, and the plan was successfully concluded, even to the extent of the ballast being re-packed. The next Track Bash weekends are scheduled for 11/12 January, 1/2 February and 1/2 March. They are an essential part of maintaining the infrastructure at the B&WR, without which trains would not run. Volunteers are always required, so please make a note in your 2014 diaries now!
