I'm guessing this is to do with the referendum? Nice Tank wagons anyways.

Hi Ian,
I think our Scottish friends will take you to task over the title of this topic :wink:
Scotch is a drink, fermented somewhere up North :drinking: hic!!

Cheers,
Ged

The name is intentional.

The Scotch goods was a fast fitted freight between Kings Cross goods and Niddrie.

The name could be a referance to the load southbound but more likely it was just English ignorance.

Another example being Scotch Eggs? (Or are the true ones marinaded in Scotch? :roll: )
