The crossing was blocked for around three hours whilst waitng for a spare pipe to be brought to site.
When it arrived, it didn't take the mechanic long to fix it and to everyone's relief the machine was moved off the crossing and into the yard and the delayed traffic was able to get moving again.
Just another day of life on the railway. cheers JOHN C.

Thanks for that Robert - long may the HST's reign with their drop down windows.
Roy Hart (Rangoon) Many thanks Roy - any central locking out there?
