     Wagon tipplers for the power station coal stockyard. Wagons entered the tippler, where they would be rotated through 180 degrees to quickly empty them of coal. The tippler returned the wagon to its original position, before the next wagon moved through.

    Fascinating to note how much changes in a single generation. (Photograph added from May 2012 doesn't quite show where the power station was unfortunately)
