They are planned to be running by 2012. and it is thought at the moment they are £250million over budget of £500million.LOL. Whoelius is nearer you than Manchester, would you believe Vancouver. do you lot not have wood chopping comps. anymore, or did it get too easy beating them, there are a lot of sissies there in skirts, they sent a Pipe Band over to the Glasgow World Championship and they won top prize??? cheers scally.

New Zealand is a leading country in the sport of wood chopping, currently having the world's top two competitors, Jason Wynyard and David Bolstad!

Cheers, Tony in New Zealand

Yes tony, and it seems there are some decent rugby players on that pretty Isle to the South of you. so good they won the Ranfurly Cup! ( Ranfurly Castle medieval remains Bridge of Weir, west Scotland.) cheers scally.

Well, the train is ready to start ... but somehow I miss the tracks below its wheels ... or is it a sort of hovercraft? ;-)

Harry Taggart on October 26, 2009

Hi Poly, If you look back in my gallery you will see the line being built to carry them, maybe in about 4 years,:-( regards scally.

Ah, yes, I saw here. It's time slowly for running that tram, they are working on it since 1779 I read in your comment!

Harry Taggart on October 27, 2009

LOL . 1779 was the year they built the World,s first cast iron bridge in England over the river Severn,Poly. This bridge is steel over the river Forth in Scotland, built in the 1880tys. and they never stopped painting it since, when they finish at one end it is time to start again at the other side, regards scally.

I know, Scally, I was just kidding because I didn't find any pics of tracks in your gallery.

Harry Taggart on October 27, 2009

Hi Poly, I would never be so remiss to forget such an important detail, if you look at the lower right of the tram,s side, there is a metre length of track,:D cheers scally.

©polytropos on October 27, 2009

Thanks for the hint, Scally. I've seen that before already. And I thought it is a kind of a Tram's "spare track" for emergency cases (like the spare wheel of my car), which is stored somewhere in an accessories box of the Tram. ;-)

Harry Taggart on October 27, 2009

It is not so silly a thought Polytropos, they carry tracks in 4 wheel drives when crossing deserts, regards scally.

©polytropos on October 28, 2009

Oh, I can't imagine where you have deserts in Scottland. Well, maybe I have to revise my "There-can-be-only-one Highlander Christopher-Lambert" image of Scottland. ;-)

Harry Taggart on October 28, 2009

I admit we are a bit short of any decent Deserts,Poly,but we do have a very shy Monster. and I think Big Sean was the first single "Highlander"? and he said it was easier than his first job as a Edinburgh Milkman.LOL cheers scally

I remember, my father sent my a postcard when he was up there at Loch Ness.

Harry Taggart on October 29, 2009

Here that was one special photo! Poly, If they had taken another, after your poor Dad had gone? It would have not only won first prize in Panoramio,s contest. I would have given you 10 euros for the Rights, LOL cheers scally.
