up with colour light signalling, modern day traction and
the stresses of everyday life? Then point your lens to Sellafield
and enjoy the time warp of classic traction, semaphore signals
and the rugged coastline of Cumbria.
Nuclear Fuels Limited (BNFL) - Sellafield exclusively
Rail Services (DRS) to serve their rail operations at
Sellafield in moving nuclear flasks and chemical wagons
to and from their Sellafield site which are predominately
powered by pairs of Class 20/37 traction in a multitude
of combinations and Class 37's respectively. There is a
relatively low level of activity at present with the feeder
services running on an as required basis (Q) and as a result
of this some trains may well run with four locomotives to
balance the workings. The
Cumbrian Coastal Path which runs between Sellafield
station and Seascale Golf Course in front of BNFL's perimeter
fence provides plenty of photographic opportunities with
the rail gate being centrally located along it.
