Track Maintenance

A rail crew was out early this morning cleaning up the track between Main Street and King Street. It had become laden with mud and whatnot. First they detached it and moved it completely off-centre, creating these amazing curves.

The heavy lifting was easily done by this Komatsu and the nimble touch of the driver/operator.

Only a few hours later, the rails have been cleaned, re-aligned and re-attached to the track at both ends. Next, they'll put new balast in. Great to see the track looking so good again.
