As promised please find attached three photos (dated 1971) of an 0-4-0ST working around the Writhlington Complex at Kilmersdon.
I cannot confirm this but I always thought this to be the last steam working around the colliery (although this may be untrue as I believe coal was extracted until 1973 and transported via BR to Portishead Power station. I think the loco is Peckett 0-4-0ST (now owned by the S&D Railway Trust).
If the information is wrong then I'm sure that someone will enlighten me.
I am pictured aged 16 or 17 standing on the loco's steps in one photo.
Regards Martin Scane Many thanks Martin, any comments anybody?
Craig is around 24/7, so watch out - well done and thanks.
