Reallyshould look into transport one of my boats up there. At least it would give me a excuse to visit more often.

A sail down the canal seems such a fuss and waste of time now. You need a crew of men following you by road to operate all the locks!

I can remember being told in the 70's by an old Eastfield engine driver that Bowling had a unique place in world history

He told me that Bowling was the ONLY place in the world where 2 mainline railways, 2 waterways and 2 roadways all ran parallel to each other and are within close proximity of each other. I suppose this could have been true till one of the railways and the canal closed. I was wondering if this is true again with the re-opening of the canal.

I wonder if anyone can find or think of anywhere else where this happens or was I having my leg pulled.

You're not having your leg pulled. There were 2 lines,one built by the Caley,the other North British.They converged at Dumbarton where the branch to Balloch had joint-running powers.
