31447 March West Junction 4 November 1986

31447 accelerates away from March station on 4 November 1986 with the 1M67 11:30 Norwich to Birmingham New Street service. It is passing March West Junction, where the sharply curved line to March depot, Whitemoor Yard and the Wisbech line (all still active at this time) diverges to the north. Class 31s were long associated with these East Anglian cross country trains, but unfortunately I only managed to get a few pictures before the advent of Sprinterisation, just a couple of years after this picture was taken.
