Viaduct in the middle of nowhere . . .
The old line to Stranraer from the West Coast main line where it passed over the Big Water of Fleet.
Standing and looking at it I could not but help reflect on the tremendous waste of capital investment we have been guilty of over the years. Now everything has to go along the A75 and we don’t seem to have the money to keep it in proper repair any more. It has many potholes and people are complaining about damage to their cars. Some repairs have taken place but the ongoing bad weather has already loosened up the filling and we are fast going back to square one.
