Leaving behind a cloud of dust the Milford West Sidings to New Biggin British Gypsum working passes Kirkby Stephen with 66012 at the helm. Kirkby Stephen used to be called ‘Kirkby Stephen West’ to differentiate from the ‘East’ station located slightly closer to the town, on the Stainmore Line. When Kirkby Stephen East closed in 1962, the station’s name could be shortened to just ‘Kirkby Stephen’. However, the suffix ‘West’ remains to this day in the station’s short code, KSW.
