DRS 37612 Dean Farm, Cliviger.0 viewsWith Dean Farm as a backdrop, 37612 drifts downgrade from Copy Pit summit with 1Q26 from Wigan to Derby RTC on January 4th 2015. The train had earlier run up the branch from Gannow Junction at Burnley to the terminus at Colne. This was not the planned shot, the train was running 30 minutes down and advancing shadows on the short Winter day from the nearby hillside had all but covered the tracks, causing the assembled photographic gallery to scatter.
