    Another Engineer here - I look after Railway bridges in the North of England. Probably not much use to other forum members, but the things I've learned on car maintenance can also be applied to metallic structures!

    Happens an awful lot unfortunately, I'm on the Eastern side of thy UK, but we've just replaced one in the Yorkshire moors that took a hell of a whack last Match from a bin lorry, and bent the track out of alignment....

    I use to do the scaffolding in the Midlands back in the 90s for when a car had driven over a bridge or the wall had been damaged and had to build a beam bridge scaffold over the track and tie everything down, you want to feel the force of a train coming under the scaffolding once scaffolding was completed and track open again. Most of the work were nights hell of a job.

    Not sure if I commented on this when this thread was started?.
    I do plastering and damp proofing. It’s a hard job but someone has to do it .

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.
