Track Walking - 12th December 2015

Not a PWay Work Weekend although some PWay work must still continue - due to Festive trains running - Weekly Track Inspection of the line between Aviemore and Broomhill, a distance in excess of ten miles, when you consider sidings and loops, fortunately we split it into two Sections of roughly equal length.
 

Here Martin Macleod and High Viz Lennon have a well deserved rest in the Guards Van, to convey them back to Boat of Garten, having earlier walked and inspected the line from there and no doubt chased a few few rabbits (that's Lennon you understand!)
 
 

Meanwhile Mike Tough inspected the line from Boat of Garten to Broomhill, above is the re-sleepering still to take place towards the 91 mile post.
 
 
 
The heavy rain mentioned in my last blog, causing the River Spey to flood fields at Broomhill but no Elf & Safety worries as Mike had inspected it earlier!
 

 
Talking of Elfs, here Colin Frost being as resourceful as ever, dons his head torch when the lights inevitably failed in the BFK ( http://restoringcoachesataviemore.blogspot.co.uk/) on the evening Santa Train.
