    A " Thunderbird" Moment

    I love seeing the oddly shaped oversized vehicles involved in civil engineering and airports.


    Having just got back to the flat, I saw an everyday JCB..
    but this one whizzes along on the railway lines!

    That's got to be huge fun.

    I would pay a lot to pull up in one of them alongside a crowded commuter platform, pull out a road map, and ask for directions.

    There are land rovers & other vehicles with wee metal wheels that can be lowered you see on Scottish highland lines - going 10s of miles

        ...........
        Yes, the Adrlui Landrover one is the sort I'm familiar with, & I'll be motoring through Ardlui Wednesday on my way to a tenant checkout/handback.

        You see them driving round the (ordicary..) roads also, kinda weird...

          They're a bit small compared to the things Mrs Mug used to make, look at the safety rails at the end of the boom to get some idea of the scale, these also run on rails;



          Google images of 'Stacker Reclaimers' for more.
          I also post as Mars_Mug when not moderating

            My first 'real job' many moons ago was a railway signalman covering the boxes north of Perth. Early in my time there I remember being amazed to have a 'special' belled through. 20 minutes later a digger wizzed past northwards. To much time in Dalwhinnie does that too you!!

              I have two jobs where we need cherry pickers to inspect ( old Victorian Mansion blocks) and I am looking forward to dragging one or two of the summer trainees out with me and watch them turn green...

              The 200 ft high one is always great fun.
