Crossing At Grade, Hexham

The coal branch on Morpeth will be a far more modest endeavour than he activity shown in this photo but the colours and movement type of this train won’t be too far from my South Maitland Railway inspired efforts. I love the colours and the heavy industrial nature of this sort of equipment: it may not have been terribly sexy or pretty but there’s a certain utilitarian beauty in this scene that I want to capture on my layout.
