19 May (Part 2) - Electrifying pictures

Knocking down stations has not been the only thing that Network Rail has been doing for Crossrail this month. Preparations for track laying nearer the station has been moving on at a pace, there are the first signs of the overhead electrification, Gayton Road is soon to be closed while the utility services are diverted around the new station site and the pile driver has been moved back into the station area.

Herewith a variety of photographs from the past two and a bit weeks, some through grubby windows and a couple on a mobile phone. Ugh!
