Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Ah, its the one with the swinging piggyback railcars that let the trucks drive over. Not quite as flexible as the sliding system, which allows the truck to drop off the load and leaves, to be loaded when the train arrives, but a lot more parallel movement than a big container crane.

Still, its one facility in the UK for loading / unloading entire trains of piggyback freight, rather than the kind of system where you could have hundreds of railheads distributed across the UK.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
