B.R. AND N.C.B. 1960s STEAM MONOCHROME: 35mm - Ironroad

LIGHTS OF CONSETT

Standard 9F 92063 at Consett Iron Works with the lights of Consett twinkling in the background. We were promised the crew would slow at Birtley Station so we could jump off, but the actuality was we jumped off at speed, hitting lineside obstacles, in total darkness, luckily gathering just a few scratches and bruises. The folly of youth. But very exciting - and they were very different times!
