Cameras hidden in amongst stones

A BBC news report states that Network Rail had spent £16.5m to replace stolen electrical cable and compensate train operators for lost service after thieves had removed the cable for the copper.  With scrapyards paying around £ 5000 a tonne, it seems like thieves had struck gold if you see what I mean.   It would take hundreds of metres of cable to make a tonne of copper so the rewards are not that easy to come by.   In order to catch the train track robbers in the act, network rail has installed motion activated cameras amongst the stones and sleepers.   As you can see in the previous post, we now supply smaller artificial rocks, all of which are hollow and can be used to hide a camera or monitoring equipment.   There is even a hollow breezeblock for larger cameras.   Ideal for monitoring building sites and building supply yards.
