NIR offered 315 to us after it was withdrawn, and we didn’t need asked twice! The Ballast Regulator has saved our track team from so much backache over the years that it has more than paid its way at our railway. Whilst our goal is to preserve the past, we think perhaps the Victorian trackwork methods are best left confined to the history books!
