2008 track relaying

In 2008 the railways discovered that the bits of track on the Geelong line that they did not upgrade under the Regional Fast Rail project (Little River - Lara and Corio - Geelong) now needed to be relaid. So now they need to cancel all trains at night, hire a bunch of guys at huge penalty rates, and handle each and every sleeper manually instead of using a special track layer to do it automatically - great cost saving ideas there guys...
