    The sidings at the old Capper Pass & Son site was an interesting place... There is hardly anything left of the original Refinery but this part remains within the grounds of the OMYA UK Humber site.

    Thanks mate :thumb

    Doing some general digging around for more info on the Loco and i came across this... apparently the Engine is a Fowler 060 shunter.

    Taken back in 1997 - about 6 years after closure ( i think )

    Update

    I got a phone call yesterday from a friend i explore with, he'd just got back from here. He said it looked like someone was in the process of stripping the shunters engine down. A steel pole has been rigged up to use as a brace for a crude lifting system and valves etc are thrown about all over. I'd like to think someone is trying to get the beast running again but i seriously doubt it.

    I know Dempsey and Boba Low have tried to drum up some interest in getting the shunter saved and I've tried to get some interest from relevant sources but no luck. So it seems its destined to be stripped.

    These are some of the shots my mate PaulUE snapped yesterday.

    And here's the shunter a few years after the closure.
