Workday Wednesday

The Model Railways of Oly Turner and Chris Matthews

Grabbed this photo from the train window the other day, a scene from the past not often seen on today’s railway:

The Horbury Junction signaller steps out into the bracing Yorkshire air (well I thought it was anyway, the short sleeves imply he thought otherwise!) to watch the progress of 2O77, the 15.04 Wakefield Kirkgate to Huddersfield, as it bounces over the pointwork outside the box and heads towards the remains of Healey Mills Yard.

Visually it’s just a shame the box has succumbed to modern double glazing being fitted, although this is no doubt appreciated by the staff!
