AUGUST 2017

This month, sees the delivery of more transformers to the upgraded Blackhillock electrical distribution station.
Shown above, held up in Regent Street in Fife-Keith on the 9th July 2017 en route to Blackhillock station.
Two transformers arrived by ship at Buckie, and ONE was eventually loaded on-to these serious trailers.
With Police escort throughout the journey, a powerful 'MAN' tractor on the front and a similar tractor
pushing the rear, the road train joined the A98 , thence onto the 'Braes of Enzie' , (which was closed),
 onwards to the A96 and Blackhillock. This one transformer weighs 266 tons. With trailers and trucks,
total weight of the road train estimated in the region of 400 tons.

Delivery history - Two transformers already delivered in June 2017. A further four of these monsters
 are scheduled for ONE each Sunday in July. This will bring the total of SIX transformers delivered.
