Rail Album for railway and other photographs

 
 
 
Rail Album
A highly unusual movement took place on the River Wey Navigation on 6th September 2010 when the tug 'Ernest' towed house boat 'Joan Marshall' to Laleham Reach for repairs. Seen here approaching Pelican Wharf, having just navigated Coxes Lock and passed under the railway bridge.

There were times when the tug 'Ernest' did not look powerful enough to haul this large vessel, but in reality it seemed to have no problem at all. Pelican Wharf 6th September 2010.

It is understood that the 'Joan Marshall' began as a commercial barge on the Birmingham Canal Navigation (BCN) network and that she was one of a handful of barges sold to a Surrey boat builder for conversion into house boats.
Pelican Wharf 6th September 2010.
