Mainly ET

Still drilling stay holes to tie the platform walls:
Works train on its way to East Tanfield
Clearing a tube
Rob cutting a hole for another tie 
Chris, Dave & Steve digging to find a tube .....

..... being hammered through by Dennis
Once found .....
..... a hole can be knocked through .....
.....  to allow the tube to be hammered home
Dennis & Dave clearing a tube
One of the difficulties is withdrawing a tube to be cleared
A different way of doing it
Dennis opened the gates for the return trip

Meanwhile in Marley Hill toilets:
