RN 73 - A venerable old container which probably dates back to the 1940's
This venerable old container which probably dates back to the 1940's rings a bell with many older people. They were used to transport people's furniture across country. A trailer like this was brought to someone's home, packed with furniture, loaded on a rail truck, transported across the country, and then taken off the other end and delivered. Full of character and still in remarkably good condition.
An acquisition like this reinforces the fact that the Sandstone Heritage Trust are not just interested in the mega items such as locomotives. In its own way this particular container has every right to sit at the top table of preservation.
