Rocks Railway Restoration
Width of the rubble was 16'. We had already cleared 17.5' rubble in May- but had not cleared all of it
since it was tiring climbing up the 45% slope with a bucket
of rubble to be carried round to the back of the station, some had
been shovelled down for speed.
We now had to clear the remaining 16' rubble which was at least 2' deep.
We hired a hoist on scaffolding to lift the rubble 38' to a skip on the
lane on the other side
We needed a rope to keep the barrow from the wall

45% is awfully steep- Mike E recovering after a slide- big masonry being

4' rubble cleared in one and a half days
another 6' rubble cleared in two days
so much glass- since there was originally a wired glass roof,
one was bound to cut oneself
having a breather
6' to blast wall so rubble cleared over half the width in one day- Pete
and Chris pleased with their work. Note its alot deeper here
