Pit to Power Station – A Personal Recollection of Coal Trains

Speaker – Chris Booth

Back in the mid-1990s, as Midlands and Yorkshire pit closures were under way, Chris Booth made the effort to go out and photograph some of the locations. Not stopping there, he also photographed trains taking coal into power stations, some of which were also closing. This is a selection of those coal train photos taken in the 1990s, along with some taken in the 2000s.
