58019 Whitacre Junction 28 September 1986

The good old days at Whitacre Junction, before the view became spoiled by lineside fences, lamp posts and assorted clutter. 58019 pulls out of the loop with a short rake of ballast hoppers, during a Sunday engineering possession on 28 September 1986. With very few coal trains running on a Sunday, it was often possible to see Class 58s on workings such as this in the 1980s.
