More from Bill Watson, this time, unusually for Bill, in colour, added to the 1960 – 1969 page.
A 9F hauled coal train at sunset against the light on the Tyne Dock line. However, in the background work had just commenced on the C.W.S. warehouse on Drum Lane and piles are being driven. Further in the distance is the spoil heap from the Ouston E Pit (I think) and down at Ouston Junction the brick hut that was next to the signal box is still intact. This was taken from the old spoil heap to the South of the line. Photo copyright Bill Watson
Taken just after the previous image, the same 9F is now being used to push a failed Type 2 clear of the junction so the Type 4 banker can get behind the train. Photo copyright Bill Watson
