JOHN'S REPLACEMENT OF RAILWAY SLEEPER STEPS. HARD WORK!
16 September 2020
Many thanks to John for his kind words, photos and useful description of his project. Removing some old rotten railway sleeper steps and replacing them with eight 'new' hardwood oak ones seems very easy on paper, but in reality it is a tough undertaking. Lifting the heavy railway sleepers up a slope is always an ordeal, and then chainsawing the hardwood oak to size is by no means easy. Add to that the slicing up and carrying away of the old railway sleepers, and you've got a pretty back-breaking undertaking. All credit to him.
