We intend to relay some of the line in 95 lb/yd BH rail on CS1 chaired concrete sleepers, to reduce maintenance of wooden sleepers. For ease and speed of handling with the crane, we are making 30' panels at Marley Hill, the rail to be changed to 60' lengths already in use.

Cochrane was hauling trains today, but due to the snow covered track we ran between Andrews House and Sunniside this morning, and Causey and Sunniside this afternoon, with AW No.2 on the south end of the train.
