|Crossing timbers under the nose section have to be moved|
by hand, because the crane cannot lift under the footbridge.
|The timbers are up to 15' and about 250kg each,|
so they need to be handled by a team.
|All replacement timbers have been manhandled into place,|
then the job of gauging, drilling and fixing can progress.

Ken drilling, Graham greasing and placing screws,
Les supplying materials, and Bill rattling down screws
Meanwhile, back at the shed, the crane is having its annual inspection. It will be needed for trackwork in the near future.
