Great pictures Rick.

Presumably the red lenses are Wig-Wags from road crossings.

I think that if I were there I'd be tempted to lift a couple for my garage.

Actually, I've found it on Youtube today. So if anyone has missed it, just search for it under 'Fully fitted freight'.

It's been split into two parts for some reason.

That's not good. At least they stopped well short of each other. :(
