High Shields Goods Yard Lights

Complaint about the dangerous lack of lighting at rail yards near South Shields.

“The new lights in the High Shields goods yard  ordered last year have not arrived yet. [Note 569.1]

The place is dark and dangerous
These sidings a disgrace
Let the darkness be illumined
Ere some shunter runs his race,

More light is wanted, too,
For driver and for guard,
At the Hilda sidings new [Note 569.2] 
As well as High Shields yard.

Is it to save gas at South Shields Station that the lamps have not been lit lately, or is it that those in authority consider the engine headlights and shunters’ hand lamps are a sufficient illumination?” [Note 569.3]
