Still daunted after all these years.

Drove passed the construction work for the new Hydro Arena in Glasgow and for the umpteenth time marvelled at how all its parts - bricks, concrete, cables, cranes, scaffolding, lighting, lorries, trucks, portacabins, navvies, catering staff, pipes, girders etc etc - fit together and in the right sequence. The project management of civil engineering projects must be one of man's greatest achievements.



And I'm daunted by having to sort out a few pieces of track, some points, points motors and cabling!


On the other hand, look at the number of people working on the Hydro!


And for those in Latvia or Serbia who don't know what I'm talking about, here is an artist's impression of the finished arena.


Anyway, must press on. Perhaps it would help if I wore a fluorescent jacket when working on the railway.
