October 2006 - Catenary Progress Update.

The day arrived with a phone call and we where bonding rails today, after a few minor problems we arrived on site appropriate equipment and ready to go at 10.30am.

Just a few pictures to show what we have achieved.

The welds have to have the slag taken off them and then painted.
