LMS Route: Nuneaton to Coventry

Industrial Railways - Longford Power Station: misc_indust1478

 Andrew Barclay 0-4-0ST 'Coventry Corporation Electric Department No 1' at Longford Generating Station

Andrew Barclay 0-4-0ST 'Coventry Corporation Electric Department No 1' at Longford Generating Station circa 1936. Built in 1929 - Works No 1942 - John Hyde writes, 'My own negative shows the engine in slightly cleaner condition in 1946 with the owner's name and number quite legible on the side tanks'. The locomotive is seen shunting a line of coal wagons in order to discharge the coal which will be taken away to the works by conveyor belt, as seen above the locomotive. There are nine wagons being processed and all were carrying the livery of Jackson from the Coventry area. The nearest wagon is numbered 1103 so it is presumably safe to assume that Jacksons had a very large fleet.
