Progress Report

Liverpool Lime Street

Demolition of the post office building is complete and the digging out of the new tracks is under way.

The Virgin buildings which also occupy the location of the new platforms have been vacated and are now also surrounded by hoardings ready for demolition.  Virgin, meanwhile, have a new office on the concourse.

Huyton Fourth Track

I was surprised to see a track machine parked on the fourth track near Roby station:
This is a Plasser & Theurer 08-16-SP tamper, I'm told.  How it reached this totally isolated piece of railway I don't know.

  1. Its known as the beaver and has legs that come out of the side. I can be delivered so a section of track like a level crossing and basically unload its self and turn a full 360. There is a video on Youtube, its very clever! Been used on the Metrolink and the Tyne and Wear Metro.
