Thanking Alex for sending photo of a New Hucknall Colliery train, he further uncovers some fascinating rail connections from Westhouses.   When Secretary of their Residents Action Group, they have some very keen railway enthusiasts able to reveal their busy railway sheds actually tracking down Huthwaites pit trains.

A map backs up claim there had been proposed plans extending these village coal distribution lines with direct links into Sutton and through our Whiteborough passenger station.   Learning of such historic industrious relations, eventually helped detail when Huthwaite gained its past railways to add delight sharing any more Westhouses rail scenes.

Steam engines powered the industrial revolution before inviting new passenger transport. The magnificent locomotive shown fronting its sheds probably represents one of the first machines once smoking paths through Hucknall Huthwaite.   Overlooking large Westhouses sheds reveals where they housed and maintained all local coal trains, shown tracking connections into New Hucknall colliery yards.

New Hucknall Signal BoxSignal Box DestroyedAlexander adds these marvellous views showing firstly the working New Hucknall Colliery signal box upon Common Road. Destroyed by youthful pranksters left the key somewhat redundant prior that pits closure.
