Garn wagon loads




Saturday afternoon saw the much put off 'adding loads to the Garn wagons'. This is something that gets mentioned at every exhibition and then is forgotten. Four Bagwag variants and two Parkside Glyn Valley open had removable platforms added with coal or crushed slate sprinkled on top and one with a load of timber. I know that these don't quite fit BoT regulations (did these apply to NG lines?) the timber should be loaded applicable to the direction of travel and roped down, and the minerals would probably be graded. Compromises had to be made to allow for removal and life is just too short to worry about every detail.
