I can see the water cans at the top of the steps by the door Pete,now you mention it.
Just wondered,was the water delivered by the inspector? or brought on a light engine?,(like what took place at Hilton House & Hindley & B B Junction boxes).
Sometimes it came via a 1-1-3, is this correct I'm a bit rusty Harry. Coal was steam coal from Light Engine that was on it's way north, it stopped near the bunker to unload. The first delivery vehicle I mentioned, also brought other supplies, 5gallon containers and such like, then it went on the single track.
2.3 is the bell code for a light engine Pete.
I knew the light engine one Harry but wasn't 100% sure about the engine and van 1-1-3 (supply train some would call it, must have been a doddle for the crew).
