I thought I'd chuck up some pics of the Filton 4-track work for anybody that might be interested to see progress. I will add to this if/when I get more photos.

Please correct me if I have the road names wrong (up/down/fast/relief). EDIT: Names corrected thanks to JamesN.

NOTE: All photos were taken within a safeguarded site, with all machine/train movements either stopped, or moving away from my persons.


TERRAM and GeoTex laid for the Down Filton Main. Sited between Bonnington Walk bridge and Constable Rd bridge 30/10/18


Installation of a set of points to go from the Down Filton Relief to the Up Filton Main. Sited roughly 30-50yds north of Bonnington Walk bridge 5/11/18


Tea break!

The line names, when stood at Dr Days Jn facing Filton are to be; left to right:

Up Filton Relief / Down Filton Relief / Up Filton Main / Down Filton Main.

We don’t have any of this fast/slow nonsense on the GW.

Thanks for the photos Aron

I always thought that the Southern was "Severely reduced" and "Cancelled". :P

No problem!
