Whether locals want to go to work, to the shop, out hunting, to visit relatives in the next village or simply go for a ride, the trolley is the easiest and often only means of transport...Link Discuss (via New World Disorder)
A three-litre can of petrol can take you about 100 kilometres. The line, once used by trains laden with iron ore, was 700km long back in the 19th Century. Just 200km remain today...
Trouble is, the trolleys are not subject to traffic control. The line belongs to the local authorities, but there is just one safety inspector.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
