Lingdale Junction 2

The second photograph of the derailing at Lingdale, with some serious lifting gear in use! Two steam cranes being used to lift the locomotive back onto the rails. The accident report lists: “No.1245 was recovered using two sets of block and tackle anchored to the rails on which the engine stood to keep them in place.  Two further engines were attached to the tackle and as they moved away from one another No. 1245 was pulled upright.
