Freight traffic through Carstairs on the morning of Saturday 23rd May 1970 had been much thinner than might have been expected from what was shown in the previous winter's WTT but this was compensated by a flurry of unexpected workings in the late afternoon. Here EE Type 3 no 6842 heads north at 16.13 on a special mixed freight, probably plying between Carlisle and Mossend Yards.
