From: Old Leeds Locomotives A super study of 0-4-0ST ‘YIC No. 6’, HC Works No. 737, which was delivered to the YIC on the 19th February 1906. It was, however, an older locomotive as the works plate clearly states ‘Rebuilt 1906’. It is fitted with 13in. × 18in. outside cylinders and 3ft 1in. wheels. When supplied it was ‘No. 6’ (the second locomotive here with this number) and was painted ‘Midland Red’. It was scrapped at an unknown date, possibly when the ironworks closed in 1929. Note the odd arrangement of the front coupling, there being no hook, merely a shackle to which the coupling links are attached.cover illustration

From: Scherzer Rolling Lift Bridges in the British Isles Pollington Scherzer Rolling Lift Bridge carries the former Great Central and Hull & Barnsley Joint Railway over the Knottingley & Goole Canal. It was built in 1916 but as the canal has never been converted into a ‘ship canal’ the opening machinery was never installed and the bridge had always been ‘fixed’. This view was taken looking westwards on the 21st June 1970.
