A Brush through Aldridge


A view from the Anchor Rd bridge looking down on the former Aldridge Station site, taken on the 10th May 1997 (already over 10 years ago !) by the redoubtable Ben Cruachan, shows Brush type-4 loco 47522 charging through with what looks like a spoil train.
The loco had a varied history including quite a few crashes, and was finally withdrawn the following year and eventually cut up.

At last! An ace shot to be found on this site!! You should of put a comparison shot underneath. I cant picture how it looks these days.
