STEAM ON THE MIDDLEWICH LINE 2008

Photo: Ian Hulme - Photos 2 Use. Used by permission
Here's another shot of the Cheshire Gardens Express on the Sandbach-Middlewich-Northwich line on May 4th 2008 - the first steam hauled train to use the line since 1968. At the time of writing the Mid-Cheshire Rail Users' Association is planning to organise steam trains on the Mid-Cheshire line in 2012. but it's not clear whether the Middlewich line will be included this time around*.
Our photograph was taken by Ian Hulme and is used with his permission. Ian has a large collection of excellent photographs of North West England, including Cheshire, on his website.

*UPDATE- Sadly it didn't happen in 2012, not even on the Mid-Cheshire line. The line was also steamless in 2013 and 2014 -Ed
UPDATE - April 2016 ...and on through 2015 and into 2016. Let's hope it happens again one day -Ed
