Re: Wordie & Co tarpaulins

Mike,

No mention in the description and the accompanying sketch doesn't show any form of cross on the tarpaulin. Lettering appears to be white - as it definitely is in the colour illustration on the dust jacket of the book which is attached. No diagonal stripe visible in that image either.

Re: Wordie & Co tarpaulins

In Edward Paget-Tomlinson's history of Wordie & Co "The Railway Carriers" he describes them as a "hap or cover" saying "the hap or cover was heavily treated with linseed oil, giving it a brownish sheen like an oilskin" (pp81). This is in his description of a single-shafted horse lorry in LMS days. S...

Re: minor incident

Dave,

By happy co-incidence I'm working on the Photo Archive of the 2-4-0 locomotives at the moment. I've had a quick look through all 171 images and, rather unhelpfully, none feature a tender weatherboard. We have 24 images of Class 98 locomotives but none of CR467.
