So I have made the most of the bank holiday weekend, apart from Saturday when it rained all day I suppose it is a bank holiday it had to rain at sometime. However the other two days we got some real work done. Friday I finished off around the pond and got some more sleeper wall in. Today got some more track down and some more sleeper wall up at the house. I even got train running only for test purposes of course.
You jest - but, when I worked on a 33 storey tower block by Blackfriars Bridge (subsequently, recently extended to 44 storeys ) we had a 'heavy lifting gang' to winch up the 3-phase power cables to the plant room on the roof.
When they came down at night, their transit van was backed up near the gate of the passenger hoist. Each man climbed into the back of the van and his foot landed heavily on the floor at the back - STOMP!
.................and as he did so, he dropped the 18" length of 4 core, HV cable on the floor of the van that had been concealed beneath his Donkey Jacket.
Sadly, we didn't intervene as they were employed by the electrical sub-contractor who was supplying the cable
Very good, you have achieved a great deal in a very short time. Top marks. View from the patio is going to be just perfect with a Train trundling round the line. Though me feers you may get tired of peering through all that wood to see Trains when sitting down?
