Unusual train movements at Wrenton


Track works are taking place somewhere south of Wrenton so a bus service is in place. Some London Transport buses have been hired and here one comes down Church Hill.

As it reaches the station a train hauled by a Jubilee is just arriving.

In the goods yard waits a Jinty - it's job today is to help turn round the trains.

The Jubilee has uncoupled from its train and is now reversing onto the down line.

The Jinty has collected the train and pulls it out of the station...

The Jubilee has coupled up and is ready to depart with a north bound service, running tender first.

The train leaves and is seen from above as it passes through the short cutting between road bridge and tunnel mouth.

Eire pops up yet again. The model, by Graham Farish, was weathered by The Model Centre.
