RT005 This view is taken from the railway sidings with Hydraulic 1 shop in the background. It is of a very large main ram loaded on trail transport. Ed note: The size of the ram suggests to me it may have been destined for the 5000 ton extrusion press for Rogerstone (the largest press built at the time) in which case it would be around 1939/40s era.
PR0117 An interesting scene!
