Real Progress!

This murky image of a smiling John shows the "golden spike" being driven in on the new raised loop. This marked the end of a long weekend of graft as we struggled to get the two ends to meet on the right level following some "bother" with roots.

The end result was hastily tested in the gloom, and Jesty managed to get around the loop a few times without any problems other thansome debris on the line.

It only remains now to fit 2 points and a short chord to turn the original oval into a reversing loop and we will have our continuous run. There is still a lot of timber work to do, then loads of planting and tidying, but the track is - at last - down.
