No.7885 waits in Bescot yard in the company of a sea of wagons of all types in LMS days. Curiously the links have been taken off the front coupling Explain 'Coupling' and dumped beside the smoke box Explain 'Smoke Box', and the rear sandbox Explain 'Sand Box' cover is off. Have the absent crew taken a bucket and spade to fill it up? Many are wagons are private owner e.g.: the two behind No. 7885 are from East Cannock Colliery, in the Staffordshire coal field. Seven lines back — yes, that many — is a train of large-size cattle wagons.
