Down freight passing Kirkby-in-Ashfield East Station
View southward, towards Nottingham and Pye Bridge; ex-Midland Nottingham - Mansfield - Worksop line, junction of line from Pye Bridge. This station was closed on 6/9/65 and although the ex-Midland Nottingham - Mansfield - Worksop route was revived in the 1990s as the Robin Hood Line, through Kirkby this followed the alignment of the parallel ex-Great Northern (Leen Valley) line and the new Kirkby Station (opened on 17/11/96) was built on that alignment. The locomotive here heading a Down Class H freight is LMS 4F 0-6-0 No. 44531.
