(Shaking, Rattling) Roaring 20s

An action-packed photo here from the 1920s showing ex-TK&F No.6 leading a string of lead hoppers into the yard whilst two goods trains pass on the main line above. China clay and alumina in transit to Tidmouth, milk and fish heading east. Just visible behind No.301 is the tender of one of the ex-ROD locos lending banking assistance out of the steeply graded docks branch.

The mighty air-braked hopper wagon is also visible. This was designed to be attached to passenger trains for the uphill run to Toryreck, but rendered obselete when Knapford (Harbour) station closed to passengers.
