Viewed in sidings adjacent to the north side of Reed’s Empire Paper Mill are two of the three Ruston & Hornsby 0-4-0 shunting locos used on their internal rail system, this pair being named "Paxman" & "Batman". Standing in the loop is an internal user wagon loaded with china clay, which will have been discharged from a vessel at Ingress Abbey Wharf. © David Morgan
