One would imagine that laying cable beside a railway line would be straightforward enough but judging by the signal pole on the ground that is/was not the case! Obviously electricals related to signalling and points would have been at risk and had to be removed or avoided. I like the fact that the supply wagon has a case of "Macardles" on standby for cases of emergency!
