31315 Great Hale 11 August 1984

With the spire of St Andrews church, Heckington visible in the background, 31315 passes Great Hale on 11 August 1984 with the late running 1D20 09:00 Leeds to Skegness service. A relic from the steam age, Heckington goods shed can just be seen in the background. Equally ancient are the telegraph wires, once a common feature often getting in the way of good railway photography.
