    In and out job really. The cement yard next door was busy which reduced our options a bit, so it's straight up to the top for the good stuff...

    Apart from the view, the main event is the carriages for unloading product (?) into the silos. This consists of carriages that would be locked into place, then a conveyor running an 'S' shape through the carriage would unload into a chute and into the silos...
