Changing Wheelsets.
Changing Wheelsets.
Much activity is taking place in this scene at Alresford Station in 1991. As can be seen the platform was undergoing extension and this particular position was the only one where the crane had sufficient room to swing round.The photographer is standing on the end platform of a Brake Van, in front of which is the wheel set which had been removed from the coach. A replacement wheelset is being lowered on to the track and this will then be wheeled under the coach.
