East Tanfield Work

Steve lets the works train through Causey Crossing
Steve, Dave, Rob & Bill unload the bogie
I'm cutting a rail to length
Steve & Bill drilling the rail ends
Bill & Rob unloading wing rails for the crossing being disassembled by Steve
Ian moving rail out of the way
Contractors digging foundations for the new carriage shed
Check chairs being fitted
Steve & Rob rebuilding a crossing
Fishplating a reference length
Fitting a special chair
