A set of 21 impressive images relating to the Marley Junction derailment of 6th September 1964 has been uploaded to the Gallery within the album "Some Accident Scenes Facing the Breakdown Gangs". Many thanks to new forum member Robin Lush for their provision.

(These photos appeared on the opening page of the Gallery a week or so ago, but that uploading was affected by a software glitch and they have today been reloaded in the location referred to above.)

Roger - Would you be so kind as to post hyperlinks to the images for the benefit of those using touch-screen devices, as you did with the previous batch?


Edit: The current set of images displays perfectly on my tablet (an iPad) so I wonder if the problem we experienced earlier in the year has gone away? Comments, anyone?

Do we know the Identity of the 2 cranes?
If one of them is the Holbeck crane then I think David may be familiar with it.

The identity of the cranes is in fact disclosed beneath the first appearance of each of them in the freshly uploaded photos (but not in the earlier, flawed, uploading) and I am indeed familiar with one of them!

It's now four years since I retired from maintaining and driving MP3 (ADRR95207) at the Nene Valley Railway but withdrawal symptoms persist to this day. It's in good hands though, with BDCA member Stan Bell currently re-tubing it and others doing their bit to keep it in good order.
