Sidings at Craven Arms
Sidings at Craven Arms
In 1973 the goods yard at Craven Arms station was more or less defunct but it did contain this intriguing item. D5145, later designated class 24, was built at Derby in 1960 and led a fairly uneventful life until it was involved in a fatal collision at Kidsgrove in April 1973. The no 2 end cab was crushed to the bulkhead and was subsequently replaced at Derby Works. Why the battered remains of the original cab ended up here at Craven Arms is a mystery.
