Short Haul

66.621 approached Chinley North Junction with 6H43, the 07:46 empty stone hoppers from Pendleton (Brindle Heath) to Tunstead Sidings, on 16 August 2016.

It's less than 25 miles from Tunstead to Pendleton as the crow flies but delivering stone by rail makes good sense as it keeps a lot of heavy lorries off Manchester's roads.
