photoblog image From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

ON SHED

An early 1970’s picture I took at the locomotive depot at Grosmont on the North York Moors Railway. Through the tunnel you can see the railway station and level crossing over the main road through the village. 80135 is an ex British Rail Class 4MT Standard tank engine and is still based on that railway. The locomotive on the left, No.29 was built for the Lambton Railway in 1904 by Kitson and Company of Leeds. It is a 0-6-2T tank engine and was used at the Hetton and Joicey Collieries in the North East until they closed in 1967.

There's real atmosphere here isn't there
Interestingly there is a fund at the moment to restore 80315 and bring it back into service.

A real feel of times gone by with this picture Brian
As a child I used to think that those were clocks on the front of the engines. Well, I was only young Brian!
I love your old series

Lovely little corner from the past Brian
