A RAIL37 Churnet Valley Railway picture report

 80136 DEPARTURE
 27th March 2001

 Froghall station on a cold, wet March day and standard tank 80136 is scheduled to move from the CVR to the West Somerset Railway.

 The track looking North towards Bolton's copper mill and Consall.

 Artifacts.

 The track looking North towards Froghall station.

 The new station building and platform is under construction.

 Looking South.

 2 man power 0-4-0 in use.

 Class 25 "Tamworth Castle" arrived with 80136 in tow.

 The standard tank was dead so the diesel was travelling with caution.

 80136 was reversed into the station loop.

 The engine was left over night before being moved further down the line to the collection point for road transfer to Somerset.

 A final view of the site having been ejected by a somewhat officious individual!
