60038 Madeley Chord Junction 7 November 1998

60038 has just passed Madeley Chord Junction, as it traverses the stub of the Newcastle-under-Lyme to Market Drayton line on 7 November 1998 with the Pathfinder Tours 1T55 14:10 Silverdale Colliery to Watford Junction 'Cheshire Mole' railtour. 56114 can be seen on the rear, with the steeply graded line to Silverdale Colliery curving off into the woods. Once clear of the points, 56114 would then take the tour down the chord to the West Coast Mainline. The start of the chord is just visible to the left of 56114.
