    Home depot was in Aberdeen, and worked freight trains between Aberdeen to Inverness and to Dundee. Rough shunts? I never did that, maybe knocked the wagons a bit hard.

    Agreed its just not cost effective for a company to remove & sell they should just be auctioned off to individuals to remove at their own cost, have kinda like a house clearance open day ;-) We all know how much decent theatre lights fetch like the ones at Staffs Royal, I wouldnt mind one for my dining room

    During my working days I attended many 'rough shunt' incidents. One particular incident at High Marnham managed to get ten empty HAA's buffer locked - still it happened in dry weather, so wasn't too bad. Usually we always seemed to get called out in pouring rain / winter conditions! Where were you stationed?

    Do the maths and you will find that it is just not cost effective to remove, refurbish and store the worn out junk that is pictured here in this excellent report.

If this wasn't the case; all we would see in these abandoned facilities would be empty rooms and stores. The making of rather boring and bland reports me thinks!
