Up freight at Westhouses & Blackwell
Up freight at Westhouses & Blackwell
View northward, towards Chesterfield and just south of Westhouses station (out of sight to the left, closed 2/1/67): ex-Midland Erewash Valley main line. A lucky shot taken from a Down express, the Class F freight is on the Up Slow, headed by LMS Fowler 4F 0-6-0 No. 44070 (built 1925, withdrawn 6/62) - countless numbers of which plodded up and down this busy line. On the right can be glimpsed the mineral line which served collieries towards South Normanton and Sutton-in-Ashfield.
