Black & White imageUndated. View shows a steam engine with carriage behind leaving the engine shed at Hawk's Nest Wood, on the Colliery Fly Line running between Aberford and Garforth. The building on the left is Hawk's Nest Cottage and the three ladies standing outside are members of the Hebden family who lived there. The engine driver was Tommy Malkin, son-in-law of Mr. Cooper, the stationmaster at Garforth, while the man pictured beside the train is Bright Masby, the shunter, whose father had a draper's business on Main Street.
