Bolster wagons

Tuesday’s Talk

Tuesdays Talk started with a chat about another ramble along a disused railway. Up the Wye Valley to Tintern found favour for the summer trip with maybe the S&D tunnels in Bath in the autumn. Steve Bell showed some very interesting pics of mis-loaded wagons that had been stopped. There was plenty of variation in the wagons and the loads. We went on to view images from the Sankey Photo Archive largely looking at the Furness and Ravenglass and Eskdale railways.
