Spring Bank Holiday .....

..... 30 years ago.   Photos of bank holiday Tanfield trains in May 1990, but I'm unsure of the photographer, who obviously tried to get an extra frame from the roll:
Cochrane taking passengers from Marley Hill to Sunniside .....
..... & returning, turned, with the 5 carriages past the 3rd arm off for Marley Hill
HL No.2 taking a goods train from what was probably AH building site to Sunniside .....
..... & Irwell returning the train
Driver Thompson heading for Marley Hill past Terrace Junction
These photos are courtesy of probably either Ian Cowan or Derek Knott.
