Clarke, Chapman capstan at Tanfield Railway
Clarke, Chapman capstan at Tanfield Railway
I just found this dumped among all the unrestored rolling stock at Tanfield railway. It is a horizontal duplex capstan that is missing its crankshaft and drum. Hopefully they were somewhere safe. Its provenance is unknown but it was likely to have come from a shipyard, dock or ship. It is not known if it still survives.
