One of the gauges on the weighbridge where the remains of H8 stand. The British built weighing machine allows the axle loads to be adjusted individually. (see other photos of this feature)

Another rear view of H8 chassis on the weighbridge. Notice the roller bearings on the rods on this 1951 British export. This is a feature that never made it onto Britain's main line locos!
