Progress Thursday 9th January 2020

Dear all,

The main thrust of the whole week really has been on the track relay project near DJW24 "Derby Road 1" bridge. The PW gang have really made excellent progress in basically a week of work with one track panel being completely renewed with new base, ballast, sleepers etc. They have now removed the second track panel and are in the process of doing it again. Its a major but vital project which keeps the railway running and their work often flies under the radar.

There aren't that many other people on site. The 'bubblecar' has had an under frame steam clean and some tidying up has been done around the new station building. The running gear checks and overhaul on the LMS BTO continues as we look forward to that entering service soon.
