A glimpse of earlier days at Ripple Lane, 1987
A glimpse of earlier days at Ripple Lane, 1987
At the depot open day one of two steam engines attending is glimpsed through the depot oil storage tanks. 8F 2-8-0 48151 was of a class often seen at Ripple Lane in steam days, but not actually based on the LTS system. The tanks look incredibly clean and must have been repainted for the open day. The tank on the left is from an old rail tank car. When in service, the tank was held down by two steel straps as well as the cables. The grooves where these were are evident, caused by fretting or possibly corrosion under the straps.
