45009 Chinley 19 June 1984

45009 approaches Chinley on 19 June 1984 with the 6H44 11:05 Oakleigh to Tunstead ICI stone empties. A day spent at Chinley in the 1980s was always very worthwhile, with a wonderful variety of traction and trains, unmanageable today. Unfortunately I only visited once in 1983, and once again in 1984. By the time I went back in 1997, traffic had dwindled considerably.
