Engineers are working to repair the landslip beneath a 50m stretch of track near Holywood in Dumfriesshire. Firstly, the engineers have to construct a new road and compound to bring material to the site, to allow them to begin the process of stabilising and rebuilding the embankment.
There was a picture too Tam, kind of looked like the railway pool but the tonnages they were talking about seemed huge? Didn't seem to be quite right couldn't see the eletricity poles either but it is one of the few places the river is close to the railway near Holywood.
The haul road might be down the field from the Holm Farm to the embankment?
