English: Royston and Notton Station, with train.
View northward, towards Normanton and Leeds etc. The Up Thames-Clyde Express (09.20 Glasgow St Enoch to London St Pancras) makes a fine sight, double-headed by Stanier Class 5 (modified with double-chimney and Caprotti valve-gear) No. 44756 piloting 'Jubilee' Class 6 4-6-0 No. 45615 'Malay States'. Behind are the chimneys associated with New Monckton Colliery. In those days (1951), this was the four-track trunk route of the ex-Midland Railway main line between Sheffield and Leeds, through a region that teemed with heavy industry, coal mines, railway yards and junctions, with an immense amount of freight traffic. However, mining subsidence forced express trains to slow down through here. From 1/1/68 all passenger services ceased, Royston & Notton station closed and since 9/68 nothing has passed this way and the traffic that is left runs on other lines - if not by the M1! As we all know, since the 1980s the mines have been closed and industry along with rail freight traffic is a shadow of what it was.
