Further Ballast Laying

On April 8th to 10th the GCR kindly ballasted most of the newly laid track along the branch line.

This was possible thanks to a further donation of 400 tonnes of ballast courtesy of Lafarge Tarmac's Mountsorrel quarry.

The project would like to say a big thanks to both Lafarge and the GCR for their help and support. Only 200m of laid track remains to be ballasted and the line is fast approaching completion!

Class 37 loco hauls the ballast train around the Wood Lane curve.

A film of the ballast laying is available on our Youtube channel.
