Very many thanks indeed for this reminder of the Greyhounds.
and report of another runaway.
So here's some pics from 2001 when several million pounds were being invested to update it, including four milk silos, two of which are seen arriving, then being craned into position and the finished job all on the new base. (See photographs below)
Runaway wagons. Featured in yesterdays news. CHARD photographer David Wheadon, captured the scene shortly after the incident and a picture appeared in the local press the following week. I have a prèss cutting of the photo showing the guards van and wagon in the pub yard. Also some years before, 0-4-2 No 5812 arriving on a passenger train from Taunton slipped on icy rails,failed to stop, slid through the platform and demolished the buffers,the force of the impact stopping the loco from going into the road.
Enjoy, cheers JOHN C I knew there was another story John, many thanks.
