60028 Brampton 16 December 1995

Superb winter lighting at Brampton on 16 December 1995, as 60028 John Flamsteed heads south with the 6E13 12:40 Kirkby Thore (Newbiggin) to Milford Sidings gypsum empties. The gypsum is a by-product of the desulphurisation plant at Drax Power Station. Although this is in one of the flatter parts of the Settle & Carlisle route, there is a still the same dramatic background, and with a little snow on the fells and the clouds luckily confined to the background, it still makes an excellent picture.
