With diesel shunters at the front and rear the Birds Eye train holds traffic up as it crosses the road leading to the Haven Bridge. Other goods carried by the tramway such as timber and coal can be seen in the trucks centre left. In additionto Birds Eye and the railway tramway, many other features of Gt.
