The Sponsored Wagon Push.

During the Summer of 1987 before the ELR had opened up to Rawtenstall, The Bury Standard Four Group decided to have a sponsored wagon push using Coal Hopper 690379. This helped use to raise funds towards the restoration of BR Standard Class 4 80097 2-6-4T. 


The wagon push started at Ramsbottom Station and was completed when we reached Rawtenstall Station a total distance of 4.3 miles.
