Down fast freight approaching Souldrop Summit, Sharnbrook
View SE, towards Bedford and London: Midland Main Line from St Pancras. Headed by BR 9F 2-10-0 No. 92164 (built 4/58, withdrawn 7/66), a Down Class C freight is running on the easier Slow lines which penetrated the ridge between the Ouse and Nene valleys in a tunnel, while the Fast lines went over the summit - cf. SP9860 : St Pancras - Manchester express approaching Souldrop Summit. [I was travelling on a Down train on the latter, hence the less than perfect photograph].
