    The reason why Redhead Station was a place of employment even after the end of passenger train services to Belmont. On 16 October 1982, 4861 and 4845 on an empty train to John Darling Colliery were put into the loop at Redhead to allow 4704 and 4703 working up the 1 in 50 grade with a loaded train from John Darling to pass through uninterrupted.
