photoblog image Once was a Colliery

Once was a Colliery

 

Saturday was the Summer Steam Gala on the Foxfield Railway in Staffordshire. One of the best of the industrial railways, demonstration coal trains run from the colliery up Foxfield bank to Dilhorne Halt, with the locomotives working hard as they climb the incline.

Two Hunslet Austerities, Whiston and Wimbbury head a train of coal hopppers away from the colliery. The sight and sound of them working hard was just superb.

Sometimes these pictures (like this one) can manage to have such a different era look. Excellent.
Les Auld: That is the effect I was searching for Louis, thanks for the comment.
Great shot Les. I'd fogotten this was on at the weekend, we have been there but only for a flying visit.
Les Auld: It was a grand show Brian, thanks for the comment.
