Freight Train Photo Charter 30th Sept 2007


The LWR ran a very successful photo charter on 30th September 2007.
Price was a very reasonable 20 which allowed accompanied access to trackside not normally accessible.


Locomotive was Peckett no. 2000 from Barrow Hill - seen here taking water at Ludborough station.


The young footplate crew were very helpful in suggesting lineside locations and provided a great steam spectacle.


Peckett seen here passing Ludboroughs up fixed distant signal.

A fine display of "clag" as the freight train gets into its stride from the northern limit of running line beyond trees.


Scene from the Southern region brakevan as the photographers head back to Ludborough station for lunch.

With no paying passengers on board the works train was able to proceed to the end of railhead. The crossing gates
at North Thoresby station can be seen in the distance. LWR hope to have track into Thoresby next summer.
