Early Days on the SVLR
Some photos of the early days of the SVLR.
The first train at the railhead loaded with displaced vegetation during construction. The line will continue towards the camera.
The first train at the other end of the line. The wagon is ex-WLR, and is currently without it's 'top' which is awaiting attention in the works. The new Chairman has promised a full overhaul, but the General Manager has been heard to say that 'They'll probably just change the bleedin' letters on the side.'
One of a number of loads of slate being moved on the SVLR, captured at the top of the steep section leading up into the wood. The ex-WLR wagon still hasn't had the promised repaint.
