Before today’s update I’d just like to thank, once again, all those people who have allowed me to use their photos on the site over the years, it really wouldn’t be the same without them. This week in particular has seen almost 100 new photos come my way which will be uploaded to the site…
Added a new photo to the Leadgate and East Castle page of a 9F with a loaded iron ore train passing Brooms Church sometime in the 1960s.
From John Stark, an excellent photo of 9F 92061 waiting at South Pelaw for its banker. Added to the 1960-1969 page.
With the country in lockdown and work rather slow, I’ve been able to make a start on the track work for the layout, more photos here.
