"A 50-wagon special train of cinders and ashes for the construction of the 1956 Olympic Games running tracks at Melbourne, Australia, was run by the London Midland Region from Syston, Leicester to Immingham Docks for shipment on May 1. Special headboards were attached to the engine before the train left the En Tout Cas Company works. This is believed to be the largest rail consignment ever made of this type of material"

From the Railway Magazine, July 1956.



;) Those were the days.
