ENCLOSED is a photograph of Foden 6-wheel tar wagon registration UR 1328, taken in its working days, outside the railway station in Blackburn, Lancs, in the early 1950s.
This was at the time of the tram lines being lifted. It may be of interest to some readers following the recent correspondence.
Is the present condition of this engine considered to be a conversion, repair or the application of common sense? One for the purists to consider.
