Hodbarrow Hematite Mine - Iron Side Tipper

  • Description

    A short film made in the late 1960s by Jon Marsh showing operations at Hodbarrow and features an iron side tipper in the train as well as one stored alongside the line. The grab wagon also appears to be based on the same underframe. Jon made extensive films of industrial railways through the 1960s and has made his film available through the B&R range as well as his own Industrial Railway DVDs - a Google search will soon bring you to the material and it forms a wide ranging and important archive. Our thanks to Jon for allowing us to use the film online. Read more on the Beamish Transport Blog: beamishtransport.blogspot.com
