We were soon dismantling the track, and quickly had the old check rails unkeyed and removed and were soon removing plain chairs and substituting for the correct handed check rail chairs. Nearest the photographer is a new CCL (left hand check rail chair). This was only cast in 2014 and the society track fund purchased a total of 15 check rail chairs to enable this renewal to take place and finish an outstanding installation task elsewhere. They’ve been stored under lock and key indoors so haven’t rusted yet. You don’t normally see chairs like this on the running line. It will not be long before they rust in the rain! We were due a downpour and gale a few hours later – before we had finished the job! Photo: Graham Peacock
