Yellow Pelican Mining Co. - Update the hot weather in Droitwich

I started this morning with the intention of working on the layout while in the back garden. However I noticed that the short length of Peco 'Crazy Track' at the rear had warped through the heat. I'm checking if the track goes back to normal, or if I'll have to cut and re-soldier it.

I'm now working on more 'clutter' and taking it easy with lots of drinks and a lollipop.


Update - 19.07.22

I've cut out the offending piece of track, replaced it with a new piece and spliced it in using PECO track connectors and making sure that sleepers to either side of the new track are securely nailed down. I can confirm that everything now works perfectly.

Haven't checked my rails yet, but it was 48.5 degrees in the shed today, at its maximum.
