Ledburn tree cutting, Feb 2023

Network Rail’s tree gangs have severly pruned one of the trees at bridge 129, Ledburn. This, for now gives down side views of up traffic not seen for 20 years. Unlike 2002 only one tree has been done so far so fresh growth will quickly obscure the scene once again…

A nice view of 37608 dragging 720602 from Derby to Wembley around 1350 on March 2nd 2023. Once the protruding branch near the ole stantion goes into leaf at least up fast views will be withered

90010 and 90007 power along the down slow with 4M63 Felixstowe – Trafford pk on March 2nd 2023

2 for the price of 1, 66604 in the distance with dead 66606 and its train all forming 6H50 Wembley – Peak Forest on March 2nd 2023

The more drastric tree pruning in 2003 allowed classic scenes like 87002 on the 1615 Brum – Euston on September 3rd 2003 to be recorded….
