Just in time, more ballast was brought into Newbridge by road, then deployed on the Levisham renewal site. 1.2 miles of renewal Regulating and Tamping was achieved in just 2 days!
The Tamping machine is new to the NYMR and arrived in June 2013 where nearly every weekend since June, volunteers have been working on the machine with repairs, maintenance, recommissioning, calibration and training. All this hard work has finally paid off.
With no breakdowns, this was quite an achievement working into the Friday night to allow running trains to commence the following day.
Finally, the track is again re-connected between Pickering and Grosmont, but still a lot of work to do for trains to run for the Half Term weekend.
Hunting Bridge is complete and the new Tamper was used for this work, click here for a short video of the Hunting Bridge final work.
Or watch the video below.
It is planned for work to take place at the North end of Grosmont on the following weekend days
This is in addition to normal weekday work.
Expected timings are 08.30 away from Newbridge and return about 16.30
Saturday 9th November

For the 2 Saturdays I need to know in advance who is definitely attending so that I can plan accordingly.
There is a PTS Personnal Track Safety recert session at Newbridge at 10.00 Sunday 3rd November 2013.
