Photographs of the Thornaby Tool Van Crane taken on the Great Central Railway at Loughbrough on 27th August 2009. There was just the crane there, no vans with it. I got a bit of shock that day having worked on site with it during incidents in the North East and the last time I had seen it, it had toppled over at Ryhope Grange I think due to the operator over reaching a loaded HHA coal wagon. I thought it had long gone.
