St Judes Rail Crossing double-tracking



St Jude's Street rail crossing is closed for this Labour Weekend, so that Ontrack can get on with the double-tracking project on this part of the Avondale-New Lynn section.

Out with a friend this afternoon taking shots of the work at hand, and I learn something new -- about ballast tampers. Photos below:



 
 

There's even a video online of one in action, via YouTube.

Here's some more shots of the work happening today.
