Heath Park Halt, with RCTS Rail Tour
View northward, towards Harpenden Junction: ex-Midland branch from Harpenden, the 'Nickey Line'. The Halt was the terminus for passengers, until the service ceased from 16/6/47, but the line continued a short distance to the Gasworks until 8/59, a connection also having been put in from the adjoining ex-LNW Hemel Hempstead station in 1948. The Nickey Line was however not taken up until 24/7/79, having been purchased and used by the Hemelite (Brickworks) Co. from 30/4/68. The photograph was taken on the occasion of the RCTS 'Northern & Eastern' Rail Tour of 10/8/58 (see TL0449 : Bedford (Midland Road), with a RCTS Rail Tour at the Up main platform), the locomotive used on the branch being ex-Midland Johnson/Deeley 5'3" 3F 0-6-0 No. 43245 - which lasted until 4/61.
