Network Rail maintenance staff working on trackside equipment on the Settle to Carlisle railway near Long Preston. The equipment is a traction gel applicator which senses each train as it approaches and spreads a gel on the track which aids traction when the line is slippery, such as autumn when falling leaves on the line cause trains to slip. The equipment is solar power to avoid the need for mains electricity connection in remote locations.
