Description

A narrow gauge locomotive depot consisting of maintenance sheds and railway sidings near Tincourt. Many locomotives are visible, including two American manufactured Baldwin 4-6-0Ts (second and third from left) and an ALCO 2-6-2T (parked in the open, left of shed). These locomotives with their drivers and engineers from the light railway operating companies performed admirable service by bringing supplies of war material from the standard gauge railheads up to the forward lines.
