John Edginton captured No. 58100 on 31 August 1958 as it drifted light down the incline in a photograph that again gives emphasis to its massive appearance. This photograph shows the locomotive in service during the latter days of its life. We are fortunate in being able to publish (p.14–19) in this issue a sequence of photographs that show its being built in 1919/20. Peter Witts has written an introduction to this and detailed captions for the photographs. The booklet from which the photographs came is in the Roy F. Burrows collection at the Midland Railway Study Centre. Further information by Peter Witts on the cover photograph is at the bottom of p.13.
This poster, dated August 18th 1890, advertised the opening of the Doe Lea Extension branch of the Midland Railway. Glynn Waite refers to it in his article that deals with the complexities of the Midland’s passenger services between Chesterfield and Mansfield. The Midland ran three Mondays to Fridays services via the Doe Lea Extension line. That was also the case on Saturdays, though in later years services were enhanced on that day.
