2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow. For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.
On 19th.September we joined with two friends and enjoyed a day out at the Statfold Barn Railway near Tamworth in Staffordshire. It is an entirely private railway, built on a farm, and they hold 3 Enthusiasts Days each year when their own, and guest locomotives, run a steady number of trains over the three mile circular route across the fields.
Not only do they run steam locos there but they also have a few diesels. This is a 2'6" gauge diesel mechanical loco built in 1971 for the hot strip mill at Shotton Steelworks in north Wales. It is based on a Hudswell-Clarke mines design, with the addition of a large cab.
