It is not very often I update the site two days in a row but the latest shot from Bill Watson is just too good to delay posting.
Showing, at South Pelaw Junction, from left to right:
- A Type 2 on a train of loaded coal wagons on the Washington Line.
- A Type 3 shunting coal wagons in the sidings.
- A Type 2 on a loaded iron ore train banked by two Type 1 Claytons.
- A Type 2 on an empty iron ore train on it’s way back from Consett.
With a total of 6 diesel engines in shot, it is the busiest shot I’ve ever seen of the junction…
