'Southam' in scrap yard, 1976
'Southam' in scrap yard, 1976
A 0-4-0 diesel shunter built by Hudswell Clarke as their D604 sits in a scrap yard by the Coventry Canal. The locomotive survived and was a feature of a pub at Southam for some while. The two chimneys are believed to be on the Courtaulds site, the central one near the junction of Guild and Pridmore Roads. Judging by the new state of the chain-link fence, the scrap yard has recently been extended over the site of former railway sidings. There is a suggestion of surviving rails this side of the fence at the left.
