LMS Route: Trent Valley Line

Brinklow Station: lnwr_brin3928


An unidentified ex-LNWR 4-6-0 'Claughton' class locomotive passes Brinklow goods shed on an up express circa late 1920s. The locomotive has been rebuilt with the enlarged boiler but retaining Walschaerts valve gear and is about to go onto the Up Fast line of the four track section south of the station. The long siding on the left was a continuation of the down slow line which marked the end of the four track section running through to Rugby. The four track section was installed in 1906 which is presumably when the siding was built. Its length was such that it could provide refuge to a reasonable size of goods train.
