QUOTE (Thunder)What a brilliant idea, moving heavy goods on to the rail network, i remember some years back there was a suggestion to close all the railways and turn them into roads, what a sorry state we would have been in if that had happened, I can quite understand why manufactures would want to return to rail, try getting on the motorways in the mornings, they are clogged with lorries, going now where fast, and the cost to operators of lorries must be astronomical, makes sense really, lets hope more companies think of using the railways, like they did up till about the middle of the last century. clap.gif
