We now have 4 Double 240 volt sockets in the MKI.

Keith has made a link to the MKII power feed with a plug which enables us to detach the cables to allow the coach to be moved when required.
Do we need notices publicising this (disconnecting the coaches before moving them) - at the signing on point / in the loco / elsewhere (even in the appropriate procedures for shunting in the SMS)? Regardless, sure as eggs are eggs the inevitable will happen one day!

Saturday 3rd February.
Another cracking day at Fimber Halt.
We cut and drilled the remaining two rails. This section now needs a bit of packing and 2 pairs of stepped fish plates.
We managed to move about 20 concrete sleepers down to the Pway area.

Are we looking at stepped fishplates for bullhead to bullhead or bullhead to flat bottom? I think that there might be an odd one or two of the latter on one of the pallets in the PW area in F2. If there are I'll bring them up on Wed.

We had a look but we are pretty sure we have none.

Steve knows what we have and haven't, he is sourcing some from elsewhere.

The joist circled in red will in future be removed, this will allow the locking trays to be placed on the bearers
