Shovelling and barrowing

infill on the London Transport jacks

15 cubic meters (two truck loads) of ready mixed concrete got delivered yesterday for the infill on the LT jacks, the new cast iron storage outside and infill at the north end of the pit on road 2 in the yard.

100 batches in this would have been very time consuming!

Preparation had been going on for some time by our WW seconded team who had measured, cut, fitted, and checked the relevant areas:

Then the weekly loco missive requested ‘Assistance with shovelling, spreading, barrowing, compacting etc will be needed please’. Some 20 turned out to shovel, spread, barrow and compact.

cast iron storage outside – concrete pad for brake blocks and fire bars – note the rail reuse with concrete sleepers for the retaining wall

Pete resting after a LOT of concrete shovelling!

The Wailing Wall team involved have now returned to their normal work, with relief – after a job very well done.
