58047 Ampthill (Millbrook) 17 July 1996

58047 Manton Colliery heads north up the Midland Mainline near Ampthill (Millbrook) with the 6A62 18:36 Cricklewood to Forders Shanks & McEwan binliner on 17 July 1996. It will shortly be running round its train at Bedford before heading down the Bletchley line to Forders, where it is due to arrive at 20:15. This traffic has now ceased, as after many years of taking London's rubbish, the former brick pit is now full. Note the 17th century Ampthill Park House just visible in the background on the left.
