How is it you know they only have one business they work for on this branch?

I'm not speaking for @Itsed65, but I worked at a company that had a similar situation. Wheaton (formerly part of Alcan) makes glass from sand. We were at the end of a line where trains brought sand to be made into different types of glass. The types of cars are probably a clue, too. Those are covered hoppers used to carry bulk items like cement, sand, and grain.

The Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Class 21 No. 19 was a small 0-4-0 steam locomotive built for shunting duties in 1910. Seen here in its later LMS identity 11243 on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway.

Naah - that's just for hangers-on ! :-P

Lovely little train - made a couple of those in N gauge once a long time ago.

I'm pretty sure that the engineer views the track ahead thru that porthole window.

Apologies for missing the train. I just like the story that a russian delegation visiting one of the first stations built in London returned thinking that the big sign saying Vauxhall meant 'station'
