Does anyone know where the landslip is that has closed the railway?

Found this online.

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?

I am now wondering if it is Dalswinton, is it the Policemans pool or along that stretch, he BBC report said 1,700 tonne slippage, damned high bank there.

Board are recommending no more than 1 sea trout per day as part of the Nith 2020 conservation plan. Beats can no doubt make it 100% return if they wish.

Going by the Drumlanrig Castle website it says two sea trout [ up to 3lb] per day can be retained up here. Not sure how up to date it is.

It is under the "voluntary" regs part of the conservation plan.

I got the email yesterday saying 1 sea trout per day I haven’t taken one in years but just like to know the option is there If I do want one

Hi Nith fishers..I have fished the nith for a few years mainly the beat up at Sanquar.I have fished it from top of beat to bottom..Was wondering if anyone has fished the beat next to sanquar at bottom i don't think its thornhill but have never heard anyone say they have fished it..looks a lot like the beat is same as sanquar with rough wading and fishing plenty trees..is it a private stretch or can you get tickets to fish here and where would you get them

Many thanks Fd
