The Hatchet Hill branch line was subject to Beeching’s axe in 1970, with no other choice Mendip Aggregates Ltd purchased the line from British Railways in order to maintain their vital rail link with mainline network in order to continue their supply and demand of ballast from Hatch Hill Quarry. Mendip Aggregates Ltd also purchased two of the Class 04 shunting locomotives that had been slated for the cutter’s torch which then replaced their tired stock of shunting steam locomotives.
Developed by Oovee, the Hatchet Hill Quarry Expansion Pack includes the Class 04 shunter, Catfish ballast wagons and a 5-mile quarry route complete with ballast loading station.
