Welcome to the Rufford Branch. This site is dedicated to preserving the history of the railway lines around Rufford Colliery in the mid-Notts coalfield with a particular focus on the signalling and operational side. If you have any memories or photos of railways in the area please email me at:
This picture, taken from the cab of an approaching engine, shows number 7 signal off for the road into Rufford. 6 and 7 were nice examples of Midland Railway lower quadrants: among the last working examples on British Rail.
