LNWRS Photo Ref 9225

No.3049 is a Trevithick 2-4-0 tank, converted from No.67 Briareus, a 2-4-0 ‘Crewe goods’, posed in this marvelous study on the extremely steep 1 in 14 Hopton incline of the Cromford & High Peak Railway Explain 'Cromford & High Peak Railway (CHPR)' high on the limestone moors of Derbyshire. The C&HP had been built to connect canals at Cromford and Whaley Bridge, and belonged to the mineral-railway age, not the conventional railways as we know today. This incline, originally an inclined plane operated by rope haulage, was the steepest gradient worked by adhesion in Britain. You can see the severe change of gradient at the foot.
