142067 Orgreave 11 August 1990

142067 passes Orgreave on 11 August 1990 with the 13:32 Sheffield to Retford service, while in the background, the Class 101 unit working the 12:27 Lincoln Central to Sheffield disappears into the distance. This line was formerly electrified, using the 1.5kV DC overhead system, so at a time when my local lines are being ruined (from a photographic point of view) by electfrication, it is interesting that at this location the opposite has happened! This was formerly the junction for the line to Orgreave Colliery, a location that hit the headlines in 1984 during the miners' strike.
