1) Bradford Junction. Renewal of formation and ballast top-up. The crossover at the junction has been removed and the formation dug out prior to refilling. 66097 on spoil train.
2 3 and 4) Hawkeridge Junction Renewal of Up Loop or Chord line leading round to Westbury East Loop Junction. This was last done around 30 years ago as a budget job with steel sleepers dropped onto the original formation and CWR installed. Now with an increase in heavy freight traffic using the loop the entire formation is being excavated and renewed and new concrete sleepers are being laid.
3) Westbury station. Fleet of assorted buses engaged on rail-replacement services for Trowbridge Bradford on Avon and Bath.
Good to see Roger about.
Cheers Keith Turley.
