Harrogate Town's players warm up at Wetherby Road ahead of a goalless draw with League Two rivals Stevenage.

On paper, this was third against 21st. On the pitch, it looked like 21st against third. Stevenage saw three efforts cleared off the line: two in a first half they dominated; a third deep in stoppage time at the end of the match. After the break, an improved Harrogate had the lion's share of possession and territory but never looked like scoring.

To baffled silence, in-form striker Luke Armstrong was announced as the sponsors' home man of the match. I suppose he did have the Sulphurites' only two shots at goal. The first, in the 10th minute, was actually on target. Keeper Joseph Anang made a diving save. I'd have given the award to Town captain Josh Falkingham. At least he played with urgency and purpose.

Efforts cleared off the line by Harrogate defenders came from Brad Barry (making his debut in the Football League), Jamie Reid and, at the death, Bruno Andrade.

Locomotive, HC.1727/1941, “R.O.F. 16, No.1”, is seen here, at Ministry of Fuel and Power, Wath and Elsecar Disposal Point, Brampton, near Wath, on 17/03/1963.

The Ministry of Fuel and Power, Wath and Elsecar Disposal Point, Brampton, near Wath, was served by railway sidings, situated on the North-Western side of the former, Great Central Railway, Elsecar Branch, immediately West of that line’s junction with the Wath to Barnsley railway line. The facility was opened by the Ministry of Fuel and Power, in 1947, and latterly, operated under contract, by William Pepper and Company Ltd, until closure, in 1968.

This locomotive was built by Hudswell, Clarke and Company Limited, Leeds, to Works No.1727, in 1941, for the War Department. Although its full history has not been completely researched, it is known that the locomotive was acquired by the Ministry of Fuel and Power, from the Royal Ordnance Factory, Elstow, Bedfordshire, by way of Cox and Danks Ltd, dealers, of Bedford, in June 1961. On 31/10/1964, the locomotive was transferred from Wath and Elsecar Disposal Point, to British Oak Disposal Point, Crigglestone, West Yorkshire.

Class D11/1, No.62667, ‘SOMME’, is seen here, on 07/06/1953, at Elsecar Colliery Sidings, having just hauled the R.C.T.S. (Sheffield Branch), South Yorkshire No.2 Rail Tour. I would imagine that this must have been one of the few occasions that a mainline express locomotive was seen at this location, although it is believed that earlier Royal Visits to Elsecar Colliery might well have provided similar opportunities. This location now forms part of the overspill car park for the Elsecar Heritage Centre, which today, would be found behind the photographer. The spire of Holy Trinity Church, Elsecar, is clearly visible, rising vertically behind the locomotive.

L. &. N.E.R., Class D11/1, No.62667, was built by the Great Central Railway, at their Gorton Locomotive Works, in 1922, as G.C.R. Class No.11F, and as GCR No.503, and delivered new, to Great Central Railway, in November 1922, when it received the commemorative name “Somme”. The locomotive was renumbered by the L. &. N.E.R., as No.5503, in December 1924, then again, renumbered, as No.2667, in July 1946, and then again, renumbered, as No.62667, by British Railways, in October 1949. The locomotive, over its life time, was allocated to Immingham, Trafford Park, Boston, Mexborough, and Lincoln Depots, prior to finally being allocated to Sheffield Darnall M.P.D., (Shed No.41A), on 20/04/1957, and from where it was officially withdrawn from service, whilst allocated, but stored there, on 17/11/1960. It is believed that the locomotive was scrapped, at British Railways, Doncaster Locomotive Works, in late 1960 – early 1961.
