up platform works
Dave from Devizes manoeuvres his little digger gingerly along the up platform to provide a trench for electricity cabling to the signalbox. The box looked very cosy today with smoke curling from the chimney.
Further evidence of changes to the up platform in preparation for operating trains in 2008 is removal of the palings ready for shoring up the wall underneath. This will allow passenger trains to use the up platform. The track sections will be relaid soon as part of the Silver Street safety works.
