Putting the Pyke crane to work!

The Roundhouse Park areas formerly occupied by the Railway Children production are now being restored to their former condition. In support of this work, our intrepid TRHA volunteers were busy this week moving our CNR Northern #6213 off the turntable so that we could bring out our Pyke crane to move some heavy lengths of full-size rail onto our flat car. This occupied our crew for a busy four hours and was noteworthy as the first extensive use of the Pyke crane since it arrived. The area being restored has now been re-sodded. The radial tracks are now clear for the delivery of many tons of ballast to be placed between the rails.
