Black 5 at Denton

This was my spot when I was a kid. The photo, taken with my Dad's Brownie 127, which he didn't know I had borrowed, was taken from a wall adjacent to the signal box and I spent hours there in the late fifties and early sixties. Unfortunately it was only on the odd occasion I could pinch his camera. Here we see LMS Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 No.44806 returning light engine to Stockport Edgeley shed,probably from Dewsnap Sidings in 1965. The large building in the background was the Queens Hotel and was demolished to make way for the M67 motorway,as was the goods shed on the right to make way for a supermarket car park.

Significant damage was caused to this locomotive on July 13 2013 when, running tender first while hauling a 'Murder & Mystery Special' from Carrog to Llangollen it struck a wooden log placed on the track by vandals. Although it was able to continue, much damage was caused to the running gear of the locomotive and tender. This means it will be out of action for some time.
This locomotive is also (for unconnected reasons) up for sale, with 4 years of its boiler ticket to run.

An excellent snap taken close to Denton Goods Yard. I am researching Denton and would be grateful to know if you had any more snaps taken at or near this location.
