Chain shunting

Recommended Posts

The forum's younger members may not be aware of some of the practices that went on when the Safety Elf isn't watching. Chain shunting is a way of getting a wagon into a siding when the loco is on the wrong end. Once a common practice but, wagonload traffic being pretty much a thing of the past, rarely seen these days.
