  • 889017

    13 April 2008 - David Deadman

    This van has been outside the old Stewarts Lane Electric Locomotive Shed for two to three years now where the steam locomotives are now prepared prior to working the VSOE. It can be viewed easily on the left when travelling by train on the 'Up Stewarts Lane Line' and looks in quite good condition.
