Strictly speaking an item of OTP normally covered on OTPnet, but this was allocated an IU number (formerly ADS 1854) and spent many years here at Tonbridge... I believe it has now been scrapped on site.

It was supposed to be going to the Spa Valley Railway years ago but never moved. Let's hope that someone saved it at the last minute (I can't believe that preservationists would let this one get away).

It has in fact turned up at Titley Junction in Herefordshire so it has been saved!

Any Info On the Hand Crane Would be Appreciated. Still awaiting restoration at Titley Junction Station.

It may not be relevant but whilst i was at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre (10/9/06) there was a very similar crane (Cowans Sheldon). If you are after specific information regarding the type of crane, may be worth contacting the Centre.
