Work has commenced on removing the redundant wiring for the electrically operated uncoupling magnets on Edington.
These were replaced by permanent magnets a few years ago and removal of the redundant wiring is hoped will aid clearer fault finding and easier access, particularly to the control panel.
Three of the four sections of the layout have been completed, with the control panel section being the last to be tackled.
It is hoped that this can be completed in the near future now that preparation of the baseboards for Lenham Junction has been completed.
It is also intended to fit some protective covers over the mass of wiring at the multitag terminals beneath the baseboards of Edington to protect the wires from being snagged.
