I promised some more screenies of the Cambs Line, and here they are:
Two services in this group - an ex-LNER N2 class 0-6-2 with a local freight, and a Black 5 pulling Mk1 coaches for the Newmarket passenger service.
The N2 crosses Coldham's Lane bridge. Saxon works is on the right; it's now the Cambridge TA centre.
This shot gives an impression of the size of the hole that was mined. The miniscule thing in the distance is the Black 5's passenger service.
The N2 freight looking back towards Cherry Hinton.
The N2 passes Norman Works. The works building was huge - around 600' long and about 5 storeys high. Chalk was mined hee and treated (essentially, baked) to make cement.
The N2 passes the site of the Saxon Works. It was demolished at the beginning of the 50s, and in this shot only the sidings (used to supplement Norman Work's) remain.
The Black 5 on its way East. Norman works is in the background.
Hope you like them!
