Miners Gala Day 1961


Miners gala Day 1961

This was taken on the morning of Miners Gala Day 1961. The locomotive 77002 came from West Auckland shed and was one of the two locos that hauled the last train over Stainmore on 20th January 1962. It had taken the empty coaching stock to the colliery sidings at Flass Junction to run round its train and it would be sitting at Ushaw Moor to load the passengers for about 20 mins since the band and banner had not yet arrived.
