View of the engine 'Sylvia', one of the engines that pulled the 'Paddy train' along the railway line from Waterloo Pit at Temple Newsam to the coal staith (Waterloo Main Colliery Depot) at the junction of Easy Road and Cross Green Lane. This train brought coal from the colliery to be unloaded at the staith and taken by coal merchants for distribution to local households. It was also used to transport colliery workers to and from the pit at the beginning and end of their shift. Photograph taken from the end of May Street off Easy Road.
