December 2007 - Trestle Factory
Work underway on the supports for the lower Darbyshire trestle with most piers now either complete or getting there. Piles are dowel, beams, crossmembers, bracing and strapping is North Eastern wood. For all but one of the existing trestles, I hand-morticed the piles, this is now much easier with the Dremel. Nb. Weighting track pins are authentic - hailing from Shelley, Koetong & Huon!
