The turntable frame makes a great welding bench!

More, he said.....
Couldn't drag switches through the bush, so put on disconnects as far as head of steel, then swapped to tipper for the last bit.

A quick wipe of the roadbase on the way to unload. Base only needs light touchup for rail now.

Pete:  What BobbyT said!  And oh, I was going to ask you about the trackside shrines to 'Mother Mary', but I cleaned my glasses and saw that it was the RofW markers!
 
Good work and many blessings for the railway!

First half of passing loop. Plenty of ties, rail drilled and painted (don't like shiny silver.)

Der,   got all the way to head of steel (15 minute trip) only to find there was no socket in the drill. So much for early start.  Go back, have another coffee, try again.
