47973 Stenson Junction 22 January 1992

Derby Research allocated 47973 Derby Evening Telegraph approaches Stenson Junction on 22 January 1992 with what is presumably the late running 2D88 09:15 Crewe to Nottingham service. This was occasionally loco hauled around this time, substituting for an unavailable DMU, and which on these occasions usually terminated at Derby. On the left, 58029 prepares to leave Willington Power Station with MGR empties. This was certainly a morning for interesting Class 47 workings, as just five minutes later, unique liveried 47145 Merddin Emrys passed by in  the opposite direction with the 6G07 10:35 Toton to Bescot freight.
