THE STEAMING SIXTIES No.9 Meandering Journeys Between London and Carnforth via Nottingham

One summer’s day in July 2010 the author made an excursion to the Peak District to revisit haunts of times past, to discover if any of that sixties nostalgia still lingered on in those limestone hills. He trod once again on the ground of the Cromford and High Peak Railway at the bottom of the Sheep Pasture Incline nestling in the Derwent Valley about a mile south east of Cromford Village. It was the water tower here that seemed to embody that nostalgia with fatigued paintwork and blobs of mold. Out of use since closure in April 1967 the four ton wrought iron water tank still sat on a five metre high stack of tar covered timber baulks. It would have probably lived through a hundred years in this form. In sharp contrast a steaming sixties reminiscence was sampled on the 30th January 2010 in the form of ‘The Cotton Mill Express’. A bright frosty morning yielded a day of bitter cold. Huddled in the waiting room at Lancaster were many expectant passengers of a more than a certain age. The lack of heating was a chilling reminder of the sixties although when the special rolled in over an hour late with a paucity of information there was a sense that not much had changed after all.
