Sorry for the lackof blogs but it’s been a very busy period that’s seen me working most of the time. Last weekend I was away in East Anglia documenting repairs to a culvert under the railway at a place called Spooner Row (near Wymondham). From there I hot-footed it back home to pack a bigger suitcase & head into London for a couple of days. After which I flew to Dusseldorf on a press trip to look at the new trains Siemens are building for Thameslink (the highlight of which was chance to drive one of the new trans at 80mph on the test track at Wildenrath). As soon as arrived back I headed up to Watford for Easter. I’m currently based here working on the rail blockade. A main element of this is the replacement of a bridge which carries five tracks of the West Coast Main Line over Orphanage Rd.

The blockade is going well. The Bridge push is currently 8 hours ahead. So,as you can appreciate, I’ve got plenty to blog about – but no time to do it!

Still, if you want to see some pictures of what I’ve been up to, have a look in these two galleries.



I’ll be back to blogging soon..
