All change at Butterfly Junction

The track gangs (Usually a team of no more than 6 people) have been extremely busy in modifying the layout at Butterfly Junction.

This was the view today – the line through the station has been lifted, as has the loop, and the sleepers from the Ashton Meadows Spur have been recovered.

Perhaps aptly, the station information board is rather lopsided.

In the shadow of the tobacco bond warehouses, the crane lifts the last few remaining rails from the station area.

The foreground is where the spur to Ashton Meadows used to run – this is planned to form part of the Metrobus route

Just around the corner, the new shed and yard is taking shape. Compare these photos to those taken in January, another set of points has been laid on the approach to the Barn, which is already half assembled.
