The loco was in secure storage along with other CEGB North West area locomotives from power stations that had closed. The wagon on the left appears to be a makeshift overhead line vehicle for the 500v system at Kearsley, not too sure if it would pass todays H&S culture!Oct 11, 2014

A565 Derby Road, Liverpool.0 viewsAt the corner of Derby Road and Bankfield Street in the Liverpool Dockland area, there is a static mounted Diesel Shunter. It carries no identification, but appears to be a Ruston & Hornsby 88DS type. It is a visual reminder that there were once two major railway freight yards adjacent to this location. The LNWR had its Canada Dock Goods Yard, and the L&Y had Bankfield Goods. Both locations were very busy up to the 1960s, and they both had access to the MD&HB system running to the west along Regent Road.Jun 23, 2014
