  • Hi John!  I can’t say anything about F&P riveters as I never saw one, either being built or in use, before my time I’m afraid! What I can tell you is that I live in a house here in Delabole that is about 30-40 yards away from the old Southern Railway cutting. Who knows, the wagon in the photo may well have been hauled through Delabole at some time in it’s life, up until the late 1960’s.  Chippy Aston.
