Class 76, 76053, stands in the headshunt at Wath Depot. The depot was slightly raised compared to the adjacent through tracks as evidenced by the small embankment. The class 76's worked the Sheffield to Manchester via Penistone route and were 1500v DC electric locomotives. Behind the locomotive is Moor Road, which crossed the line and gave access to Wath Main Colliery.

The line closed in 1983 and the depot was demolished. The colliery has also gone and has become a lake. The section of Moor Road in the photo has also ceased to exist.
