20071 & 20063 Bickershaw 12 March 1990

20071 & 20063 approach journey's end, as they pass Bickershaw village on 12 March 1990 with MGR empties from Fiddlers Ferry Power Station. Just a few hundred yards further on they will arrive at Bickershaw Colliery, where the train will be reloaded. Although no run round facilities existed at this time, necessitating two locos on the rear (20197 & 20082), there clearly was at one time, as the train is just approaching a double track section. There is now no trace of the railway at this location.
