Sail Train

The lighthouse at the termination of the South Gare was supported by a sail train; this image is believed to be from the official opening to the Lighthouse at the South Gare. A similar conveyance operated to the Lighthouse at Spurn Point; instead of an Engine Driver, we have a sailor as Helmsman, we wonder what A.S.L.E.F (Rail Union) would make of it today?
