Spent the day on site today, got a good ride count but an even better construction photo count, below are just a few of the 146 I took today.
As already reported the first leg of the marmaliser went in today, below is the story of how it was installed.
Plans for fixing the legs in place.

Footer for next leg and possible themeing part?
No track was installed today but it is installed all the way upto the top end of site (except for the near side airtime hill) as the marmaliser was in the way, unti today. Ground works were in full force with diggers shifting tonnes of earth, footers being placed and concrete was being poured.
Track all the way up to the top end of site
Concrete was being pumped onsite for most of the day
Nearly ready for the lift hillOther random construction pics

I counted 20ish track pieces in the car park, only 3 of those were straight pieces and I presumed these to be maintenance building track. There is still no sign of any lift hills.
