Remember Paul's dog sitting in the van at Fimber Halt on Drax delivery day? I offered a free cab ride to anyone who could guess his very topical name. As far as I can see, no one had any ideas (you boring lot!) so as promised here is the answer:-

A very topical name. So if you approach the van does he shout (or bark) HALT! ??

Following grading and levelling of the ballast, a vibrating roller is brought in to compact the bed ready for tracklaying - looking good!
