⚠️ There's some big changes to @Se_Railway services through #Chislehurst tonight and tomorrow morning, affecting trains to #Sevenoaks, #Tonbridge and further afield. The reason is emergency engineering work related to this pink rail - read on... /1
The rail is dyed pink so the crack you can see on the left can be seen more clearly - and it's the crack that's causing the disruption. It's part of a crossing, that allows trains to cross from one track to another, and the crack means trains can only pass over it at 5mph. /2
This shows the crack seen through a handheld scanner and you can see from the scale of it that we can't leave this in place for long and still run a normal service, so tonight our team from Orpington Delivery Unit is coming in to cut the section out and replace it. /3
