#96 – Explosives!

Unlike proper heritage lines, Snibston didn’t appear to have a demonstration freight train running, at least not a steam hauled one (although there was a charter on the Friday, but I only found that out afterwards). That was a shame as they’d brought a steam train in especially from the Chasewater railway and it ended up hauling a carriage for 2 days. Still, it brought the paying punters in, and I even managed to include it with the colliery headgear in the background. There’s very few colliery headgears around now, and even fewer with adjacent steam railways – the only ones I can think of are the Foxfield and Beamish, so this was quite a rare opportunity.
