UID 8F, Blackwell Mill, 2nd August 1963
An unidentified Stanier 8F 2-8-0 is in charge of a brakevan and has just passed Blackwell Mill Halt, supposedly one of the smallest stations in the country, as it works towards Buxton. The station was built to serve the small row of railway cottages which nestled in the triangular junction and was served by the shuttle trains which ran between Miller's Dale and Buxton, the two other sides of the junction having no station. The 8F is under the control of a delightful Midland Railway lower quadrant signal, the signal on the right protected the curve from Peak Forest Junction to Buxton Junction, now the only track remaining at this site. The station closed in 1966. Friday 2nd August 1963. Slide No. 217.
