Last weekend was the Foxfield Light Railway's Autumn Gala with several engines in steam running between the station at Blythe Bridge and the Foxfield Colliery. The line runs through some fine countryside but the prime photographic spot is the Colliery where the locomtives really have to work hard as they pull freight trains up a steep bank out of the Colliery yard.
The only working Steam Crane locomotive, made by Dubs and Co in Glasgow in 1901, leads the Bagnall No. 2 engine out of the colliery. The sound of steam locomotives working hard echoed around the Staffordshire countryside.
