James Watt Dock

Indulging in a little gravity shunting at the James Watt Dock, Greenock in 1988. The train has drawn out of the United Molasses depot and then reversed up the tight curve towards Ladyburn. Then brakes applied. Loco comes off and runs back into James Watt dock sidings by the molasses depot. Train is dropped downhill past the points and locomotive then joins train for the second trip up to Ladyburn, this time at the other end.
