Coaling Tower

A very appropriate structure has been purchased for locoyard – a Hornby coaling tower.  Unfortunately there is not enough space on the layout for now so has been set up on top of the display cabinet whilst I consider what to do with it!  56xx 6619 has been posed delivering coal trucks, whilst rebuilt West Country Class pacific 34026 Yes Tor takes on coal.

One thought on “Coaling Tower

  1. Worcester Shrub Hill coaling tower. This appears to be something of a unique structure being mainly girder built and appears to hoist a complete coal wagon up to the hopper. However, I can find little detail on it and cannot be sure if it’s a GWR structure or a Midland structure as both companies had depots at Worcester. Can anyone help?
