The Anonymous Widower

Victorian Construction Methods

Brunel would have recognised the philosophy behind all the construction going on to complete the platforms and trackwork at Hayes and Harlington station, possibly in time for the timetable change on May 16th.

As you can see the contractor is using as many bodies as they can!

I remarked on this to a guy with a clipboard and he smiled widely. He certainly looked like he was enjoying his day in the sun!

If the Great Western Railway cn beg, borrow or steal some electric trains for the sixteen of May, I don’t give up hope of seeing an electric shuttle between Paddingdon and Hayes and ~Harlington stations.

After all the Great Western Electrification needs a victory and the industrious orange army seemed to be doing their best! Let’s hope it’s not all in vain!

The Oracle is still giving the current timetable and hasn’t been changed yet!
