The locomotive started life with the Port of London Authority but as the London Docks contracted the fleet were sold on. The heat from the load in those battered ex BR 16 Tom Mineral Wagons was quite intense!Mar 01, 2015

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

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
