Industrial Chibble

Pathfinder ran a charter to Beverley just before Christmas and one of the off train options was a tour round TATA’s Scunthorpe steelworks. On the day we found out that the kettle was broken and they would be using the hired in HNRC 20056 as the main train loco. Having done the diesel gala day there before, it was worth another trip.

20056 stands at the AFRPS platform. In the background can be seen the four blast furnaces known as the Four Queens of Ironmaking – Queen Mary, Queen Bess, Queen Anne and Queen Victoria.
