Another view of W S T and the tanker
A line of wooden bodied colliery wagons in a sunken line
Andrew Barclay 2274/1949 No 22, a locomotive which was bought new for use on the Bowes Railway
Hibberd 3922/1959 was also used locally. She is numbered 101 and is also known as Planet (the name of the loco type)
Here is 101 again, with a cut down brake van from the NCB's Harton system
A fine rake of chaldron wagons
W S T storming away from the platform
W S T still storming the bank with the gas oil tanker
Miscellaneous underground equipment in the yard, mostly of 2 ft 6 in gauge
Also present was this beautiful Foden Steam tractor unit of 1928, UR1328. This had a surprising turn of speed.
Rolls Royce 10229/1965 was present. Formerly Manchester Ship Canal locomotive DH26, she has since moved elsewhere.
W S T seen returning with a coal train. In the foreground is one of the pulleys for the rope worked incline to Blackhams Hill.
The coal train consisted of many types of wagon, as can be seen here
No 22 at the platform, probably being coaled from the sacks seen to the left of the loco.
No 22 at the head of a brake van train, with W S T at the rear
101 marshalling the chaldrons with a brake van
Another view of UR1328, taken from the platform
W S T with one of the brake vans. Not many brake vans have web addresses on them, methinks!
Another visitor was this ancient fire engine from York
No 22 setting off with the chaldrons
101 having a rest
MSC DH26 parked behind the wagon repair shop
