Towards the end of the day

 

Darkness falls and the last train stands in Loughborough station. The passengers have all departed, just a few die-hards left. The stalls have all closed and the bar staff are cleaning up.

 

In the yard of Loughborough shed the engine crew of 4953, Pitchford Hall, settle the locomotive down, emptying the ash from the smokebox and dropping the fire. The end of a long day
