Title:  SOO 4598 tied down in the industrial park lead with the Jordan spreader
Description:  The spreader crew had been doing ditching work along the line since the previous Tuesday.

Title:  The ditching crew shoves the Jordan spreader CP 402872 up to Darwin Rd.
Description:  I thought I was finally going to catch the spreader in action...but alas, this was as far as they were going for the day. Instead of shoving it across the road and continuing their ditch-digging work, they started to pull it back north to tie down at Windsor.
