An engineer’s trip down memory lane

I had to have a chuckle at RAE Martin’s difficulty in getting a guided tour of the A2/M2 Cobham to Junciton 4 widening!
Over 40 years ago I was the working for the contractor excavating the underground works to the Loch Awe underground power station contract in Argyll.

When I went back there a year or two after it came on line I was charged, I think, 2/6
(old money) by the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board (NSHEB) for a tour of the very works I had spent all those years sweating over.

They certainly didn’t offer lunch but I ate my sandwiches in their carpark just to show there was no ill feeling.
