Better to drop the fire with RP at a time of one's choosing than have the pump stop at the top of the infinite downgrade.

I dimly recall there was paper traffic from Snuggery to a newspaper mill north of Albury, Ettamogah?
Apparently there was a union dispute about the unloading of wagons, if they were to be done by railway union members or Printing and Kindred industries and VR or Vline threw their hands up and let it go to road.
I recall the story was published in a Railway employee news publication at the time. Probably early ‘80s.

This is interesting as I always wondered why this traffic was dropped by V/Line as it was a daily service IIRC?
