trollys are still running mike but i think they bring them out on the busier times and better weather...normals buses and other vehicles are running up and down every day though..went down the coal mines last year must admit it was a real eye opener as to the conditions they worked under which brings to mind this young rellie of mind who lost his life working the mines in 1885...
