Keith I've attached 4 pics which may be of interest: No.1 shows a Unimog and trailers being positioned ready for loading 60 ft track sections Nos 2 and 3 illustrates the tracked Panel Lifters during stages of loading these sections Pic 4 is at Gwinear Road where all the recovered sections were stripped with the steel sleepers to be recycled for a future relay on the Barnstaple branch. Gwinear was also utilised to build the new sections with concrete sleepers, 32 sections in total were built. In regard to Guildford, we did re sleeper the viaduct and I know some touching up of the alignment was carried out, I'll find out from my tech the rationale behind the new design. I've got a few pics of the Guildford works which I can pass on later Regards Graham Many thanks. Graham is a Network Rail Engineer with responsibilities for the permanent way in this area.
