Powderhall

Cable haulage in use daily on a line in Edinburgh. The system is used at Powderhall depot to move the Binliner in order to position the required container flats alongside the loading/unloading apron. Note the steel cable, to which the vehicles are attached, running from the winchroom on the left, looped through the anchored (yellow) boxes between the rails running to a return loop box at the end of the siding see image 51074. Photographed on 27 October 2006, with a loaded container visible top right.
