Courtesy of John Atkinson once again, I’ve added two shots of 37030 in the aftermath of a collision with the buffers at the Steelworks in Consett.
I’m delighted to have a new contributor to the site, John Atkinson, who spent many years based at Tyne Yard and spent a lot of time going to and from Consett. First up are photos at Consett Low Yard of 37094 and, rather unusually for the line, a 47, 47311.
I’ve added another superb shot from Stephen Mcgahon of an unknown Class 37 passing Stanley in January 1978 with a train of steel from Consett.
I’ve added extracts from the Working Timetable for June – September 1979 here.
From my own collection I’ve added a new page for the Summer 1954 Timetable for what was left of passenger services on the line.
