Hi, is that a double decker near the bottles if so it could have been myself and my primary 5 class, we were taken around the yard for a project we were working on at the time in Drakies primary school, the teacher was Mrs Crawford, wife of Mike Crawford who worked in the yard. I remember being amazed at the size of everything. I ended up working for Barmac in 1998-2000 maintenance spark, best job ever.

Thank you,
