Network Rail worker to appear in tv documentary today
A NETWORK RAIL worker from Morpeth will be appearing in a tv documentary today which explains how night workers make an essential contribution to the nation’s wellbeing, particularly at the moment. Rob Turnbull works on overhead lines, and today’s programme will show Rob and his colleagues working to replace life-expired OHLE components on the East Coast Main Line late last year. Rob said: ‘I wanted to take part in this documentary as I’m really proud of my team. Come rain or shine, we’re out every weekend. I hope the documentary will be a real eye-opener and show the scale of the work which goes on behind the scenes to upgrade the railway. The episode highlights the hard work of my team in often challenging conditions and shows how dedicated they are to improving the railway.’ The episode of the Night Force series featuring Rob will be shown on BBC1 in England and Scotland at 11.45 this morning (15 April) but will then be available on the BBC’s online iPlayer.
