Progress Monday 25th June 2012.

Another pleasant sunny Monday meant unfortunately that work on the cwr section had to be postponed due to excessive temp so to plan B greasing fishplates. However, due to several other hundred or so interested parties organization of the work today took the logistical skills of several million ants transporting 100 tons of beef cattle through a city centre during a firestorm. Anyway, Mike Billings wanted to go flailing ( with the komatsu ), vct wanted to work at bridge 24, p way wanted to work in 40 steps cutting and the weed killing team wanted to work in the middle of everybody else, oh, and can we go home early so you'll have to move out of the way several times. So, said convoy left Wirksworth with the komatsu leading followed by the vct then p way with the multicar bringing up the rear.

P way managed to grease 40 pairs of plates but had to give up due to lack of bolts - fishplate greasing is now at mp 140 1/4 .

Vct managed more fence to fence clearance at bridge 24 with 2 fires and clearing brash down to Jebbs lane after the komatsu had flailed.

Weed killing team managed to finish off more mares tail in 40 steps cutting and further work in Wirksworth yard.

Not to forget grass cuttung in Wirksworth yard by lone vct worker as well.

Another peaceful Monday.
