Coal Trains

Jubilee class 45645, Collingwood, passes through on the Up line with a train of empties. The Jubilee 4-6-0 engines were built between 1934 and 1936 by the London Midland and Scottish Railway and up until the 1960s were usually to be found on express passenger trains. Photo David Holmes.
