From 'Point of Ayr Colliery': A diesel 'dump truck' transporting chocks to the workface. This machine had a function similar to a fork life truck and its free steering was an advantage over railed locomotives, but there were drawbacks. The diesel fumes produced did nothing to popularise the vehicle and its wheels could soon churn up the roadway, especially if work was being done in a damp area.

From 'A Visit to Longhedge Works, S.E. & C.R., in 1903': A view of the capacious interior of the running shed. On the left stands an unidentified 'R1' class 0-4-4T; these engines, designed by Kirtley but built under the SE&CR regime by Sharp, Stewart in November/December 1900, were used on suburban passenger services and a 'VICTORIA' destination board can be made out mounted on the smokebox door. Behind is 'D' class 4-4-0 No. 731, a Wainwright/Surtees design built by Sharp, Stewart in March 1901. Looking resplendent on the right is 'A' class 0-4-4T No. 561, ex-LC&DR No. 102, designed by Kirtley and built by Neilson & Co. in July 1875. The 'ghost' of the driver, just captured oiling the motion, gives an indication of the time exposure needed to take these shots.
