Crossrail railhead is go...

The Crossrail excavation railhead is now operational, and a train was being loaded from the conveyor system as I went past today. Couldn't get a decent picture because of the geometry of the site, but I'll go back tomorrow and try to get something.

It's annoying that they've actually opened up a better view of the work by changing a couple of the side panels of the footbridge from sheet steel to steel gridwork, but the grid they used is made of parallel bars about 3mm wide spaced 10mm apart, and it's almost impossible to take a decent photo through it. I'll go back with a different camera that allows manual focusing tomorrow, that may help.
