The 66's past a fairly steady pace not too slow and were not making that much noise for the amount of weight being pulled, the weather was on the cold side! they never seem to do trials duing the summer!

Melkridge

We then took a trip to Melkridge at the old site of Plenmellor for the limestone,

Nice, I would have gone out for 6L66 but went on a (non-railway) trip to York instead.

There's also a slightly different shot available at Bardon Mill from the foot crossing east of the station.

You can just get one of the signals in with an eastbound train. You also know when something's coming as the crossing has the red/green lights. The signal box is closed at weekends, so the signals are off all the time.
