    A well timed visit saw this vehicle being loaded - it was later taken to MOD Bicester.

    The machine is used for measuring actual track geometry against the design geom. The offsets this produces is then given to a tamper to move the track back to its desine location. It also measures the six foot and has an in built ballast profile scanner. Good Stuff

    When I take over my new posistion at Network Rail in the next few months one of my first tasks will be to arrange for the naming of this machine and I can confirm it will be called "The spirit of Bescot" after the Walsall depot

    I normally work on the South Machine 999800. But if 999801 does get named the spirit of Walsall i would like to be transferred over. Also the staff and Team leaders on 801 are far superior to the southern team.
