Fowler Diesel at Kearsley Power Station.0 viewsA woebegone looking John Fowler 0-4-0 diesel shunter (Works Number JF4210078/1952) was sandwiched between a pair of internal user ex BR Mineral Wagons at the mothballed Kearsley power station on May 13th 1982. 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

Kearsley Power Station No.2 at Rainhill.0 viewsIn a quiet corner of the events field at Rainhill on May 26th 1980, Kearsley Power Station electric loco No.2 had been given a garish livery and was promoting the CEGB. The loco was surrounded by various gems of the then British Motor Industry, a Ford Cortina, a Vauxhall Chevette and an Austin Allegro, which was only two years old at the time, but looks as though it already has a rising tide of black underseal!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
