NYMR 2016/2017 Winter Track Renewal Works

It is that time of the year again where sections of the rails, sleepers and ballast are removed and replaced, the first job at Yorfalls has been completed and in the new year (2017) a start will be made at Mile Post 14.

Many volunteers spend around 9 months of the year to get the heavy machinery ready for 3 months work (actually just several shifts of the heavy plant machines during the winter renewal projects).

More information to follow, but the Plant section of the website has been updated to reflect the work carried out earlier in the year to get the plant machines ready!
