Cadbury's World

Jubilee loco 45601 "British Guiana" is seen passing Aldridge Junction signalbox on 21st August 1962 with a down excursion from the Cadbury chocolate factory at Bournville, Birmingham, returning to Shaw, Oldham, complete with Cadbury headboard.

The large building on the extreme left is the rear part of the Avion cinema, now a bingo house.

A Cadbury's special charter last ran this way in February 2008 with 2 x Class 47 loco's...

Happy Easter !
