Re: Rutways and Plateways in Australia
There was a very short plate way just a few km from Sydney City. I was the Scout Leader at Longueville Sea Scouts in the 1980's. We had a plate way through the the boat shed and down into the water to launch sailing boats. It was made of steel right angled "rail" and steel flat trolley wheels. While it was a monumental pain in the arse as the wheels were a bit big so it easily jumped the "rails" it was a legacy system that had been there since Noah played scrum-half for South Cairo. It was well outside our ability/resources to replace with a more modern system.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sadly, the hall burnt down in the late 90's and everything was destroyed, including the boats, the ramp ... and the plate way.
