Footplate Shoulder Bag
This handy bag is a smaller version of the Driver’s Bag, though in the same style. It is shorter in length (12") and height (11"), though of the same width, so it takes up less space in the loco’s locker - an important consideration when there are three or four people sharing the space that used to be for just the driver and fireman.
The bag has a shoulder strap in place of the handles, so it leaves the user’s hands free for actually holding the cab handrails whilst getting on and off a loco.
UK made, of good quality leather, with a strong carrying strap and stout single buckle. Durable plastic internal stiffening is fitted in place of the original card, to help it retain its shape through years of use. Size is 12" long x 6" wide x 11" high.
