I am informed that a new point has got to be made as they do not have any spare, so they are running at reduced speed across the affected area having installed some temporary track.

Link below, taken from the Southern Electric Group's Facebook page, clearly shows that the ropes are no longer visible. The question is were they cut or just wound on the drums!

As a rule all our cranes were jib to London, when I worked at Brighton and to the best of my knowledge all the depots I visited had the same, apart from the depots in the inner London area, IE: Stewarts Lane. It is the same as up and down lines in general up is to London and also platform 1 is usual...

Hi Steve Would it be possible to have a copy of the DVD. It would be nice to see the Eastleigh boys on the job. I was working on the Brighton gang and on the odd occasion Eastleigh would come onto our patch and we would go onto theirs, as we did with Ashford, Stewarts Lane and Wimbledon. Regards Mick
