Progress Tuesday and Wednesday 17th/18th October 2017

Hi all

Thanks to Chris Ralls for covering the two new projects of building the crossing keeper boxes at Idridgehay and Gorsey Bank
The Pway team continued sleeper changing between Hazlewood and Shottle and change d 15 on Wednesday.
Another project commenced Yesterday which will see a small platform being constructed at the end of the old ballast dock which will allow the new cherry picker to be loaded onto a flat wagon for use by the PWay to remove the overhanging branches and perform tasks on the bridge and tunnel roofs
55006 was repaired after its braking problems over the weekend which was found to be a hole in the rubber pipe which connects solebar to the bogie

All for now

Mike
