SEPTA Dale Interlocking Lansdale PA January 11 2007
Part Five of an ongoing series. Part One is here, Part Two is here, Part Three is here, Part Four is here.
A Gradall is brought in to level and prepare the area for assembly of the new switches.
Gravel is dumped and smoothed out to create a level base for the work to come.
Next, rails are placed on the gravel to support the ties.
Then the ties are placed on the base rails, and the new switch rails are positioned on the ties.
