RARE VISITOR TO BRIGG

One of Network Rail's Mobile Maintenance Vehicles visiting Brigg in January 2019 - see Nigel Fisher's Brigg Blog

Our thanks go to Martin Axon for providing pictures of a very rare visitor to Brigg.
They show one of Network Rail's Mobile Maintenance Vehicles - dubbed 'workshops on wheels' - passing through our station.
Based at locations around the country, MMTs help with repairs, renewals and upgrades to Britain’s 20,000-mile rail network.
Until Martin stepped in, we'd never seen a picture of an MMT on the ironic Brigg line.
Network Rail says that within the safety of these work units, employees can make repairs to sections of track or, using a slow ‘creep’ mode, effect what are called rolling repairs.
When launched in 2015, it was said they would revolutionise railway maintenance.
Was this MMT carrying out repairs on the Brigg line or merely using it as a way of getting to another destination to begin work?

Knowing you as a fountain of knowledge...in the olden days when trains went clickerty-click along the track, the individual rail lengths allowed for expansion/contraction...now that we have so-called welded continuous rail, so no more clickerty-clicking..how do rails expand/contract without getting into a muddle?

Today tracks are continuously welded but they have breathers put into the rails which is basically a section of line that is sliced to allow movement

I have been in relationship with my boyfriend for 2 year now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another girl, i really love this guy and never can imagine my life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Chief Dr Lucky, so many persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in two days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after two days. I am so very happy today that he came back to me and i achieved this with the help of Chief Dr Lucky, and i advice if you need his help too Email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or Whats App: +2348132777335

I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called dr.ajeghe. When I nearly lost David in one of our stupid,fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.i read so many testimony about Dr. ajeghe love spell,how he help to bring back ex lover back.I quickly email him.and also get back my husband with his love spell. And when I was at my most desperate,he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! David my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to dr.ajeghe email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help ajeghespelltemple@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +2349069171173
