Who lays the track (and maintains it) checks the points, mends the fences, maintains the signals, keeps the line operating and the infrastructure in good condition? The superb infrastructure team run by our Chairman Richard are the ones you will see out on the track in the middle of winter because that’s when our essential track replacement takes place.
Without track and signals we cannot run our trains and that’s a no brainer. But we also have assets like bridges and viaducts, as well as footpaths and fencing which have to be in good order to accommodate our many visitors. If you like working outdoors, then this team could be right up your alley. No training is required before you join this team as you’ll get full support from your team members as they impart their knowledge.
I plan to catch them in sunshine for their photograph because its a rare sight. For some reason I have lots of them in the rain and snow!
