144003 Burton Salmon 12 March 1997

The well known photographic location of Burton Salmon is popular because of the high volume of freight traffic, with passenger trains being very much in the minority. On 12 March 1997, 144003 passes by with the 11:10 York to Chesterfield Regional Railways North East service. At the time there were just two passenger services over this route each day, with the other one only going as far as Sheffield. For some reason there were double the number of trains in the opposite direction!
