There was a 11.38 Bristol to Portsmouth ecs, a Cl 158, the 3N78, which was sent to replace the turbo which returned the other day.
Curiously, it seems to have travelled via Dean according to RTT, passing there at 13.27.

Looks to be open (but with trains taking much longer than normal between points) for none-passengers trains. As well as the empty passenger trains, various (12) stone trains and frieghtliners yesterday all showing intermediate times - this is from Real Time Trains at Dean.

Looking at RTT, the freight services were running as early as Feb 28, the limit of backward searching.

It says somewhere they’re going to do some initial piling from track level.

A job that the electrification HOPS train can do at last?   Huh

Wrong sort of piles, surely? I don't imagine it has the right attachment for driving sheet piles.

I’d have thought that was a straightforward change of attachment, the underlying technology isn’t really unique to rail after all...

I'm surprised they didn't mention horseshoe newts and greater crested bats as well, as they seem to be attracted to bulldozers like moths to a light.

I presume the Gazette & Herald is another organisation set to American spelling. 20 meters, voltmeters, multimeters? I presume metres.
