Once a year the ESR paid host to the (then) British Railways weedkilling train operated by Chipman Ltd. The train was top and tailed along the line by a BR Diesel in the down direction and an ESR engine in the up direction.  Crossing Merryfield Lane Bridge on the return journey, the train is hauled by Barry Buckfields Jinty 47493, driven by Wilf Wilds.
