20154 & 20140 Bramshall 12 August 1989

Shortages of the new Class 150 DMUs led to Class 20s being used on Derby to Crewe trains for a few weeks in the summer of 1989. 20154 & 20140 are pictured passing Bramshall on 12 August with the 2K51 14:22 Derby to Crewe service. Bramshall station was situated on the far side of the level crossing. It must rank as one of the very earliest stations to close, as passenger services were withdrawn in 1865! It did however continue to handle goods traffic well into the twentieth century.
