Used to get the heebies if I had to go any higher than the 5th floor of any the 3 high rises in the Calders(Had a paper round).

The place sounded haunting if you stood in the stair well up in the higher floors. Hated using the lift too...it was jump out at the 5th and use the stairs :D

We should attach a huge banner on the truss saying to tourists " There are too castles worth seeing in Edinburgh, you've seen the first now come to Tynecastle"  :sunny:

Not sure if it's been covered yet but I was speaking to the security guard on Saturday afternoon and he said that they were getting the biggest crane in the UK up to lift the beams into position on 25/26 January.

Be a shame if they dropped it

Apparently it was cut into pieces which were planted all over Edinburgh to produce more trees

 

But maybe it went to live on a farm

Massive cranes are ******* awesome. Especially the ones that arrive on about 6 different trucks, and need another crane to put themselves together.

Cheers Farin :thumbsup:

 

edit - would be nice if they could reuse the wood for benches or something - even the new nursery gardens?

 

Really looking forward the new stand but would love to retain as much of the old stuff as possible.

The smaller branches were put through a mulching machine onsite, no idea where the main trunk pieces went or whether they'll be re-used tbh.

I don't know if its been mentioned, but do the club have plans to sell the old seats (maybe a row of three or four) to the fans? I quite fancy having them as a bench in the garden

Just something with the logo on it would be sufficient.  Enough to make the tourists ask the guides what it is...
