Flaming June, but not in the right way!

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

The MPLR Point of Way staff were not at all amused today when they were called first thing this morning as someone reported a blockage on the line.  Not far from Lavender Hill there was a large amount of branches and foliage across the track.  There appeared to have been a fire!

Job, Hamish and Terry were sent along to investigate.

This certainly wasn’t going to be cleared quickly, and they managed to get a wagon and some tools along to help them with the clearing up.  They set to work quickly.





As they were clearing it soon became apparent the reason for the fire!

It was an old 2CV that had apparently been dumped and set on fire, they were not at all happy!  This was going to take them most of the day to clear up!

Well, let’s hope that the boys got to the Adderbolt Arms in time for a well deserved drink!
