View NW, towards Market Drayton, Nantwich and Crewe: ex-GW Wellington - Nantwich ( - Crewe) line, which was important especially for freight but was closed 9/9/63 for passenger traffic, 11/5/67 completely. Here the 13.02 from Crewe is headed by the engine which when withdrawn from service in 11/66 had the distinction of being the very last GW (standard gauge) locomotive to run on BR: '8750' class 0-6-0PT No. 9774 (built 3/36).
