Kirkby Stephen West, 7th August 2022

A busy spot on what is a rather quieter railway. In July signal boxes north of Blea Moor were reported as changed from 24-hour to two shift operation.

56094 was hard at work and sounded like a '40' in the distance. 6Z56 12:38 Carlisle Yard Colas Rail - Hellifield Goods Loops, formed of empty logs wagons. 56094 returned and proceeded to Grangemouth.

43290 + 43299 1Q17 1030 Derby R.T.C.(Network Rail) - Darlington Up S.S. The signal box is now supported as by scaffold, as is the footbridge.


46115 Scots Guardsman 1Z43 1025 York - Carlisle.
