View of a completed running line point check rail on the running/main line side of the point. New CCL chair nearest, with new wooden keys to keep the rail firmly in place. Note the improved splayed end and compare against the old ones in step 2. We now have a decent check rail with no side wear on the head, with a more gradual lead in over the correct length, and properly seated in chairs and held firm. The lead in now has an initial flangeway gap of 3 ½ inches and the flangeway gap is now 1 ¾ inches along the parallel section and opposite the crossing nose on the point. It looks much better than the old one. Photo: Graham Peacock
