Although this print of 50651 and its push pull set has no details it is believed to have been taken on the last day of passenger services, just outside the Holcombe Brook terminus at the start of the 1:40 gradient down to Tottington, hence the wagon brakes notice. Unfortunately, this small collection of branch pictures does not contain any of Tottington or Greenmount stations in operation. Does anyone have any that they could supply to our editor to complete the set?.
