Wagon Transfers

What do you do when your railway workshop is on the broad gauge but the wagons you have been refurbishing on the standard gauge and the nearest standard gauge line is nowhere near your workshop?

That was the dilemma facing Southern Shorthaul Railroad earlier this month and they solved the problem with a 100 tonne capacity crane.

Your about to see some outstanding work by the crane driver and his crew as they lower the wagons onto standard gauge bogies so gently that there’s hardly a sound.
