This unit is an example of a narrow gauge Ganger’s trolley, powered with a petrol engine. Because of distances involved they were widely used throughout the system, superseding the back breaking, hand powered earlier models.

On occasion a trailer was used for tools and other items when the men were engaged on major repair works.

This trolley entered the Museum on 15 February 1971.
