Dean Forest Railway

I’ve come across another couple of Railway Forums on my bookshelves, this photo was of particular interest.

The unloading of Hunslet 3806 at Dean Forest RPS, direct from West Cannock Colliery, Staffordshire.

Hunslet 3806/1953.  Acquired new at Rawnsley 1953 but moved to Chasetown in the same year.  To West Cannock No.5 1961/2.  To Dean Forest Railway Preservation Society circa March 1973. (Named ‘Wilbert’)

Currently – January 2018 – out of service.  http://www.deanforestrailway.co.uk/
