Phase 6 Track Laying

 

The lads have been very busy, they got a mini digger in and started to digging the canal sorry track bed out to depth.

I could not make it to help, so Garry took the photos we have of them working, well some of them looking at the photos. I like to get some short handle spades to see if they would fall over when they lean on them? Well done lads looks the part.
