31417 Sleaford West Junction 24 August 1991

31417 passes Sleaford West Junction on 24 August 1991 with the 1E85 09:57 Sheffield to Skegness service. A filthy departmental grey locomotive doesn't quite match the neat InterCity liveried rake of coaches. The line diverging to the right heads towards Lincoln via a very sharp curve that almost turns through 180 degrees around the town of Sleaford.
