Thank you all for the posts.  I am indeed going to proceed on the basis discussed above - it all looks pretty sound now, I've always been able to sync above 84/24 due no doubt to close proximity to cab, and if I do have to pay to move it in future it probably won't be any more than I would have had to pay today (and might even not be for me to be pay at all in a fault situation).

You've ruined my weekend, anfield !!! 'Midland Shelf Cabs' ......  :'( :wall: :wall: :rant: :rant: ........ no doubt a stock presence in your own locality, going off your given distance from Scouseland ??!!  :) :)

I'd say MSC's are approx. 5% of our make-up on the SOM patch .... but there's (I believe) a national programme upcoming to have these removed and replaced with the latest push-connection Cabs ?? We'll see.  ::) :)

The majority of our problem underground estates are deffo the 60/70's with frontage tees. One estate in particular started to see a plethora of faults coming on about 15yrs ago and it's known as 'JB23 alley' these days. Ha ha, it all adds to the fun and frustration.

Off topic but having worked all over the country on lodge it is interesting seeing how the network differs in different areas, there is a video on the BT archives website (titled Underground distribution on housing estates and found here https://www.btplc.com/Thegroup/BTsHistory/BTfilmarchive/1970s/index.htm) that shows some of the many different methods that were tried. I also find it amusing coming across lodge engineers in my patch with 20yrs experience who have never worked in a midland shelf pcp or jointing post/brick!


Really enjoyed watching that, and I can conclude that I am on radial.
