I was going through a lazy period railway wise when I visited Astley Green quite late in the day. Consequently I kept no record of all the locos seen. Any assistance with identification would be appreciated. I also located Walkden where North West Area locos were repaired or scrapped but failed to gain access to the shed and works buildings.
