Oh dear.
It would have been cheaper to buy a new fridge, or hire a ute to move that one.
But you've got to give the guy points for initiative!

In the good old days everything went via rail
I even remember parcels vans on the back of the U boat interurban Electric trains that went from Sydney to Gosford.

Wow, that got the imagination into overdrive - I just got the picture of a 50ft parcels van tied to the propellor of a WWII German submarine, did think it was a bit lost with the Sydney reference tho :mutley2:

Paul,

Very good.:mutley2:

I don't know if German Uboats made it this far south. I know the Japanese were sinking ships off the east coast during WW2.

They were talking about this on the radio yesterday and the guest 'expert' mentioned that the legislation states that you can only carry with you, what can fit on your lap or fits in the baggage/parcel shelf above your seat...

Cheers, Gary.
