Do not skimp on the PVA.

Brilliant :)

 

Don't laugh but that happened with one of my ballast experiments only two nights ago - a mess.

Had to re-do it. :)

Frightening. Three passenger trains passed over it before Network Rail stopped traffic- even though it had been reported. That line of larger stones in the collapsed area looks interesting, as does the baulk of timber and stakes apparently associated with them. It looks to me as though there had been problems there in the past, and that was the repair, which itself collapsed causing the problem. Perhaps the terracing originally had a retaining wall, which started to fail so they dumped all that clay up against it.

 

No doubt no records of the patching exist now, though given my experiences with Network Rail they can't find the records they do have.

Where was that and when?

 

Baildon, near Leeds -

- somewhere out to the north, I suspect - June last year.
