Cairngorm Mountain Railway Investigation

On his excellent blog and in the Sunday Herald, Rob Edwards reveals Audit Scotland is to investigate the funding of the Cairngorm Mountain Railway.

Few mountaineers wanted it built. We were assured it would be a tourism money spinner.  

Instead it has struggled to make money.  Rather than let it go bust, it was taken into public ownership.  Estimates are it'll cost taxpayers £50m and perhaps another £50m to remove from the hill.
