This selection of rolling stock has clearly lay dormant for a long time, the most interesting of which is the ex military crene at the front of the line.



Easy to find had a really chilled out wander round here with @Down and beyond after some morning underground epicenes.



Thanks to @westernsultan (the master of all things trains) we know a little bit about this unit.
Crane 63063 – built by Grafton 1914 – works number 1540 – built as a steam crane for a ship
missing information including name of ship - believed to have sank, crane removed at some stage
converted from steam to diesel, and mounted for rail use for MOD – no more information
last depot believed to be ammunition site at Bramley with ESR by 1991 at current location by 2013





The rest of the rolling stock are old wooden wagons & flat beds in varying states of decay, I actually fount these more photogenic so heres the rest of the pics

























And finally Iv never seen @Down and beyond looking so happy above ground ;-)



Thanks For Looking
