What wrecking crane is in front of NW 514924 in the photo at URL below?

http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPi ... id=2353971

Link to above photo found via: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/rslist ... NW&Page=71

It does appear to have a 5 or 6 trailing its number but the vertical pane windows on the rear of the cab rule out the wrecker as being 514925.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

The distant crane appears to be of Southern and not N&W lettering. Both are NS.

I'd look into Southern Railway records.

It looks like a match.
