Tracklaying

Here's a proper shot taken of today's track laying which has finally commenced. It's code 55 flatbottomed on the colliery lines for that industrial feel. You can see how Polbrock fits into the scene over there on the left.

Up near the distant loco in the middle, the switch rails and frog still need to be fabricated. The crossing in the foreground may be lifted or simply turned into a non-road access. Note the 1 in 20 gradient going up into the colliery, not an uncommon thing with the real thing which could often be very steep and frequently steeper than this. Only a few wagons at a time will go up here so not an issue.
