Just for fun

I’ve been working on the railway

Had a visit to the Scottish Industrial Railway Centre at Patna near Ayr. This is a fascinating place with volunteers running the trains on open days at the weekend. Of equal interest – to me anyway – were the the abandoned buildings which are pretty huge as the site at some point employed nearly 1400 people producing pig with coal brought in by train from nearby coalfields. The iron production ceased in 1921 but the site continued as a brickworks until 1976.
