The Longest Load to travel on rails? Or ... Narrow Gauge in Caithness Scotland.

We crossed back from Orkney today and drove via John O'Groats and Wick before heading south through Inverness. About 6 miles north of Wick on the A99 we drove over a narrow gauge (metre-gauge) line. This was a surprise and it needed to be investigated. .... This post is the result.

Interesting article. Except for the trailing end, one could argue that the pipeline traveled between the rails rather than on them. Nevertheless, that was quite a project! And those are some serious chains they're using!!
