Old Tramway, Bixslade

 

A lovely day to go up the Old Tramway track at Bixslade. A contractor's brushcutter had been through to clear the bracken so that we could expose the tram stones. We removed and scrapped the weeds and grass from around the stones.

See last year's report of our yearly task here where there is a photo of the clearing in 2003 (click - 3 August 2021 )

 

Steady progress was made up the old track but we did not get to the top of it!

The original nail holes were cleared and we found this old rusty nail in one of them.

A good section is now exposed.
