42 done 78 to Go!

Over the last couple of weeks, safety critical work has commenced at Birkhill, including rerunning and reviewing social distancing  risk assessments and general clearing and tidying up of the platform and buildings. Monday 15th Saw the  works train moving down the line to  the Avon Viaduct and then onwards to Manuel for the delivery of track repair materials

After all the leaf’s had been removed the next safety task was to start work on painting the cope edge along the platform (110 in total plus the ramp downs), this job is not quite like painting the Forth Rail Bridge but you do get a feel for what it must be like and will take a few sessions before the job is complete.
