Gathurst

Narrow gauge explosives train, hauled by Ruston 4wDM loco No.7, crossing the Douglas Valley viaduct on the short, two foot gauge, line linking the Nobel's Roburite factory at Shevington with the exchange sidings at Gathurst station in 1978. See image 21338. [Apologies for the quality of the picture - I only visited the location once to capture the workings. The viaduct and railway have since been demolished but No. 7 is preserved and has been restored to working order by the Moseley Railway Trust at the Apedale Heritage Centre in Staffordshire]
