Another day of great endeavour with L53 undertaking EMC testing on the TBTC track leaving the battery locomotive blinking in the autumn sunshine. The permanent way team completed all the new signage for Gorsey Bank with the exception of the Up fixed distant. They also recovered all the, now, redundant signs and scrap from the old installation. The drain south of Gorsey Bank crossing was unblocked following the various earthworks in the area and is flowing well amongst the white goods deposited outside our boundary there.
A mammoth move of sleepers from the Flatrol freed that vehicle for activities next week and lift plates were fitted to a particularly bad rail joint on the Hannages.
I forgot to mention yesterday that the gate hinges were fabricated for the Gorsey Bank gates and we await the road/rail machine and trailer that will transport them to site and assist in placing the gates into their final position.
The Passenger Services team assembled for a meeting to review their activities and the Booking Hall received a few visitors.
