One of that mad old fools hare-brained schemes. This, to build an inter-outpost transport network.
Tramps carrying freight. Powered by Tennants Export. On a string. On a string in front of their dam' fool heads. Lurching. Lurching along, carrying huge backpacks, weighing them down, with only the promise of a dented tin of warm cheap supermarket own-brand hobo-water.
Hugely successful, the network was the subject of an IPS takeover, and the holdings company have recently announced their intention to create a SuperTrampway, with upgraded fuel supplies (Buckfast Tonic or MD 20/20)
