What is the longest load to travel by rail?
« on: May 11, 2019, 11:20:19 PM »
Got a length in mind? Sure you don't want to increase it? Once you have that figure in mind, click on the link below. The answer will become apparent as you read. ....

We crossed back from Orkney today and drove via John O'Groats and Wick before heading south through Inverness. About 6 miles north of Wick on the A99 we drove over a narrow gauge (metre-gauge) line. This was a surprise and it needed to be investigated. .... This post is the result.

Continuous welded rail? :D
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”
