Test Train on Ramp

The first test train has carefully negotiated the track on the loading ramp! A remarkably fast proces got the track down in no time. Still some minor works remains to be done: fishplates have to be soldered in place and the rails need painting.

Loco no. 3 and a single skip are slowly moving along the new track. There is still no stop installed at the end of the track. Consequently the speed was kept to a minimum.

Apart from the remaining tasks on the track, the ramp is now being fitted with a walkway for the workers. It will be of all wood construction reusing planks from a demolished shed from one of the gravel pits. No need for unnecessary expenses.
