A REGULAR reader who prefers to remain anonymous managed to salvage this old railway relic some years ago, and is hoping to send it on its way to a new working life.
It's a temporary bogie, which would have been used to support the immense weight when building or repairing steam locomotives.
It came from the Great Western works at Swindon, but was manufactured at the GWR Stafford Road works in Wolverhampton. It weighs, its owner tells us, approximately 18 hundredweight.
It will soon be off to a new home at Chasewater Railway in Cannock, where it may well be put to its original use once again.
