Wombwell Main Junction

37070 passes Wombwell Main Junction at 07.25 on 17 July 1981 and takes the branch for Barrow Colliery where its load of empty HAA hoppers will be replenished. The branch was the northern remnant of the erstwhile South Yorkshire Railway's Blackburn Valley Line which had at one time run through to Wincobank, Sheffield. The electrified line to Penistone curving off on the left had less than 24 hours of active life left although the official closure date was probably the following Monday.
