Removing a static steam locomotive, Kingsway, Newport(1)
On Sunday morning, November 11th 2012, the 0-4-0ST (saddle tank) locomotive
on display here LinkExternal link was removed to the heritage Pontypool & Blaenavon Railway
about 15 miles away.
The first stage of the process was to hoist it into the air and place it on the
transporter vehicle. In this view the locomotive appears toylike, but it weighs
about 20 tons, so it needs to be skilfully handled by the crane operator.
