‘Smooth ride?’
You can’t have a smooth level crossing. It’s just not a real railway with a smooth crossing! Real Level crossings always shake your fillings out
YWR should be authentic :lol:

Good day bat Fimber today! With Will's help and his trusty tractor a lot of stuff was moved around. More sleepers were stacked and the point cleared to enable further planning work.

The sleeper pile grows and grows!

Nice clear point .
I did some joint cutting for the repairs to the shop door. There is far more rotten timber than I thought but I can repair it.

The magnesium crossing was recovered from behind the large bins and placed next to the track for cleaning before it is moved again!

By eck Alan, its actually manganese steel, magnesium would make it rather light and very very expensive!

I think magnesium just tends to fizz quietly in the acid rain...

My Beetles crankcase is made from a Magnesium alloy......

"The Volkswagen air-cooled engine is an air-cooled boxer engine with four horizontally opposed cast-iron cylinders, cast aluminum alloy cylinder heads and pistons, magnesium-alloy crankcase, and forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods."

I guess Will could lift it with his tractor then! Right grand.

Arrived on site today to see some busy members

Andy was under the loco removing Air tanks for testing
He also found some pipework for radiator that will need some attention before opening.

Alan was carrying on with the big shop door project, replacing the rotten wood in the frame.

And the Pway gang was caryying on with the wood sleepers removing the check chairs and replacing with standard Bull head chairs.
