Reportedly Elgin has already (less than 8 hours later) been completely stripped and demolished to allow the extension of the loop to take place.


Also for the record, the new Highland Workstation in Inverness SC which has taken over all of the above was signed into use on Tuesday 17th October at 09:12hrs.

And the first train promptly left an axle counter up! It's all behaving itself now though.

Yeah, it was fixed pretty quickly though, I'm still up here until Saturday helping to oversee the first few days for the signallers on the workstation and finishing off some training for others, then its back to the joys of the Motherwell project next week!

May I ask if the TD at Highland Workstation has a 2 letter descriptor for Smart Installation. Thank you
