Inside cab, Hythe Pier locomotive
Inside cab, Hythe Pier locomotive
All a bit makeshift. A new chipboard driver's seat of doubtful comfort on top of the motor, a tram type controller, a box of unknown electrical significance beyond. This is not present on similar locomotives that remain battery powered. Also a large switch box, and what appears to be a newish ordinary white domestic switch block on the wall, hopefully just for the train lighting. And a hand brake. But the 1917 locomotive does its job very effectively.
