Could microwaves rid rail lines of leaves?
13 September 2016 Last updated at 18:29 BST A UK company has created a new type of treatment to remove the residue of leaves from railway lines. Mark Hester is co-founder of the Imagination Factory who have made the new technique. He told Radio 4's PM programme that new microwave technology could create a more efficient way to prevent trains from being cancelled.

National Records Centre
One of York’s most anonymous buildings houses the railway’s engineering memory – an archive of around nine million records dating back to the 17th century, but still expanding to take in documents from the 13,000 or so live projects currently being pushed forward by Network Rail. All the great engineers are represented – Stephenson (both George and Robert), Locke, Barlow, Brunel – and a number of structures that helped to sharpen the cutting edge, such as the tubular girder bridges on the North Wales coast line. Also here are the title deeds for all the land and properly ever owned by the railway. But it would be wrong to regard Network Rail’s National Records Centre simply as a historical repository. Understanding how a structure was built and its subsequent evolution can help to explain the development of a defect and inform the design work to effectively remediate it, so the drawings can play a part in the railway’s day-to-day asset management regime.

Mobile Maintenance Train
Eight Mobile Maintenance Trains (MMT) will be entering service over the next 12 months, based at locations in the East Midlands, on the East Coast Main Line and across the south-east. The trains are intended to reduce the amount of disruptive access needed for routine engineering work whilst improving workforce safety. They create a safe haven for maintenance teams to work in, protecting them from the elements and train movements on adjacent lines. Each MMT comprises three vehicles: a traction and supply unit where welfare facilities are located, an intermediate car with storage areas for tools and materials, and the maintenance unit itself which is linked to the intermediate car by two hoists. The fleet is being manufactured in Germany by Robel and will be operated and maintained by Colas Rail under a three-year deal. http://www.railengineer.uk
