ROLLING STOCK

SNOW PLOUGHS


The line had four snow ploughs for clearing the line over the Mendip Hills.
Originally built to fit the 0-6-0 Fox Walker saddle tanks, being altered when these were re-built and altered yet again to fit the new Bagnal tank loco's. They were later modified to fit other locomotives such as the Armstrong 4F 0-6-0's.
Two were kept at Bath and two at Highbridge. In later years the two at Highbridge were mistaken for 'scrap metal', being overgrown and looking rather sorry at the back of the shed!
