Tyres at the SDR
Waiting to be fitted is this large collection of loco tyres at the South Devon Railway 27/10/2009.
I could see a class 50 diesel and a Prairie but most just had order numbers to identify them.
I still think it strange that steam locos with steel wheels run on tyres but it would be much more costly to replace the wheels!!
