About this image
Shown here is a class 58 heading a 'down' line coal freight (probably for Willington Power Station) halted at Stenson junction. In the background is an H S T service on the Birmingham and Derby junction line.
These are hopper waggons'. Note the mile post on the trackside just beyond the furthest corner of the nearest waggon; these recorded the mileage progressively along the line (in this case the distance from Trent Junction?) in divisions of one quarter of a mile.
