56027 Lower Birchwood 9 April 1992

56027 passes Lower Birchwood on 9 April 1992 with a loaded MGR, presumably destined for Ratcliffe Power Station. In those days a even a short visit to the lines around Alfreton was guaranteed to produce a procession of coal trains. This location has long since disappeared in a sea of vegetation, and it looks like power station coal traffic is also soon going to be a thing of the past!
