Setting:

This is the small town of Wilkes Crossing as it was in the late 1950s.

Description:

The Mitchelson Brewery takes in supplies and ships out “The Taste of Britain” beer, but only one car at a time.  Some beer is also shipped out in trucks.  The Jeanes and Son Foundry produce small orders for industrial clients.  There are rumors that they are going to sell out and the property will be converted to a brick works.

The loading platform can accommodate two railway cars, and a wide variety of materials arrive there for transfer to trucks.

The town is a busy place if you look closely, as keen eyes will count twenty people.
