40s302 Bank Top (Swinefleet Peat Railway) 1 September 2002

Motor Rail 0-4-0 40hp 40s302 stands abandoned in the grass at Bank Top, on the Swinefleet Peat Railway on 1 September 2002. Surrounded by more discarded equipment, and on the opposite of the rough track to the surviving railway line, this loco has obviously seen better days! The 3 ft gauge line had just recently closed, although this particular loco had been out of use since 1996. Like most of the locos used on the line it had been modified throughout its life, the cab in particular been altered.
