Work has temporarily moved to another location. This is where the 'figure of 8' loop will rejoin the back garden circuit. Another point (left hand side of photo) has been added to the passing loop. The newish 60cm straight track marks where the new line will connect. The viaduct also needs some repairs after the severe frosts last winter.
The original viaduct
Preparations have started in preparing the foundation for the new line.
Where the new line will rejoin the back garden circuit
The side walls have been cut off the last 2 sections of the viaduct so that both lines can now avoid Mrs Beeching's conservatory. The block and piece of wood mark the location and approximate height of the new line.
