Darfield No 1 Arriving at Embsay

 

Last Sunday was the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway's War Weekend and doing duty hauling the troop train specials was industrial locomotive Darfield No.1. Visiting the line from the Llangollen Railway, the Hunslet Saddle Tank, built in 1953 for the Coal Board, put up a sterling service hauling heavy trains between Embsay and Botlon Abbey stations, moving the troops with efficiency and plenty of smoke.
