LCBER: Rail Grinding

Trains Page Home Page Comments to: Dewi Williams About


The L&CBER owned a rail-grinding machine mounted on an ancient pair of spoked wheels. It was powered
from the traction line. I saw it in operation at the end of Mostyn St.
There was also an equipment trailer. This had pneumatic tires.

and Craig-y-Don.
