Fine old freight trolleys, Totnes Station
Fine old freight trolleys, Totnes Station
Another striking old trolley at Totnes station. The large rubber covered wheels and suspension mechanism are quite pleasing, perhaps reminding us of a large child's toy. One imagines great bound travel trunks being loaded on to the trolley by the hard pressed staff and wheeled to the station entrance to be loaded on to a horse drawn coach. Behind it is a similar model to the one to be found at another posting (see below). Behind this is the modern equivalent. I wonder how venerable that one will become? Will it here in 75 years' time?
