Mike Henney has sent in the four shots below.

  The first two taken on Saturday June 3rd 1978.

Mike writes,

"I have attached a couple of shots taken not on the coast line, but of trains to/from North Wales passing through Calveley between Crewe & Chester.
The station closed in March 1960, and when I passed through on Thursday March 22nd 2012 the down platform was still there.
The up platform & signal box are long gone I'm afraid".



47503 on 1157 hours Crewe to Holyhead with a nice but not quite in focus view of the signal box.
(Note my mode of transport at that time the blue Reliant!).




47529 & 47442 on an unidentified up train. Not sure why double headed, maybe a loco failure, or a convenient way
of moving a spare loco rather than a light engine movement?




The two shots below show 60019 "Bittern" taken with my trusty Instamatic of the loco passing through the ex NSR station at Fenton on
6th March 1966 with a Williams Deacons Bank special which I think started at Stockport and went to Crewe & Derby I think for works visits.
At that time, Fenton station had been closed for 5 years (Feb 1961) and the buildings were by then just empty shells.

January 26th 2012.

The following photos were passed to Dave Wood for inclusion on the 6G website.
Unfortunately not much detail regarding location, photographer or dates was supplied.
However I think the photos are a rare record which justifies their publication.



The Midland Railway built a single 0-10-0 engine in 1919, designed by James Clayton, primarily for banking duties on the Licky Incline.
It was affectionately christened by enthusiasts and railway men as 'Big Bertha' or 'Big Emma'
It's original number was 2290 then in 1947 22290 and then it was given it's BR number 58100 in January 1949.

22290 is shown below taking water at Bromsgrove South [21C] - (October 10th 1948).
