DRS Class 20s at Crag Hall 1998

DRS Class 20s at Crag Hall 1998

A pair of immaculately turned out Class 20s standing at Crag Hall box with a train – they were being routed into Crag Hall Yard, our editor assumed that it was a train of empties for Skinningrove Works. Russ Pigott has now told us: ”It was a route refreshing trip in February 1998 they were light engine. Later in the day they went to Whitby and stayed there for the night. When I took the photograph I was nursing a sore finger, which I had trapped in the cab door at Doncaster on the morning this view was taken.”

    Sorry James, it was a route refreshing trip in February 1998 they were light engine. Later in the day they went to Whitby and stayed there for the night. When I took the photograph I was nursing a sore finger, which I had trapped in the cab door at Doncaster on the morning this view was taken.

    Oh right, thanks for that Russ. I seemed to remember a pair of 20’s on a tour in the area. Didn’t know if they did the boulby branch. Sorry for any confusion caused!
