Steaming out of Consall
Leaving Consall station for Cheddleton
This weekend is a 1940s themed weekend on the Churnet Valley Railway. The platform of Consall station was "invaded" by a garrison of German troops (hence the 3rd Reich Battle flag) and the local Black Lion pub was taken over by the French Resistance!
