a few from inveresk rail yards..
when playing sport in lonny i'd always manage to give them a visit and have a wonder around, not a securiy gate or person anywhere ,it was still a bit of a time capsule even in the 80's .back in the days when vandalism wasnt a national pastime....[img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8391/8651571593_4fe7ba46cd.jpg[/img][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8105/8652695194_7f235ea09d.jpg[/img][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8536/8652695094_eeef8f37dc.jpg[/img][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8118/8651571649_bf285d67a5.jpg[/img]

talking about the log traffic
my old neigbour drove a b double log truck.he was saying that a day for him was two trips to aurther river to the hampshire chip mill.now this was a brand new b double so with loan repayments and maintenance the grand profit for the day was $40.00 .........why would they bother.
until they can get companys to compete realistically then tasrail really cannot compete with the trucking industry, especially logging.
the company he worked for went broke not that long after we talked about it... worked out they didnt pay super for the emplyees so really they carted the loggs for nothing....
