20118 & 20031 Ratcliffe-on-Soar 1 July 1985

With the cooling towers of Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station dominating the background, 20118 & 20031 amble along the up relief line on 1 July 1985 with a short rake of ballast empties. I only ever visited this location once, which seems odd with hindsight, given the impressive backdrop, and the variety of traffic in the 1980s.
