    On the 45th!
    I have often wondered if it would have been worth creating a link up with the national network to avoid transhipment at Georgemas Junc. Either a light railway std gauge or extend the 3'6". The cost of cranage and transport over the years must have cost a bit.

    In the UK, where 'public' NG lines are very much the exception, what NG was used for, and what it is being used for here is 'materials handling' in the workplace so its very traditional - and non traditional at the same time
