Agree absolutely classic. :tumbsup: Had the guys off loaded the ballast load first, they might have been able to hire a smaller crane, and save a few bob towards project no 4 :)

 

Love the detail of the foreman looking under the wagon

Enjoyed your video and the preamble which leads me to the question Noel, are all wagons marshalled so the discharge wheels are on the same side?

It's in a private Facebook group which isn't available to non-members. The likes of YouTube and flickr are better hosting options for video for forums like here :)

Some rakes were marshalled with half pointing right, half pointing left. Other rakes were all pointed in the same direction.
