View southward, towards Langley Mill & Eastwood, Toton Yard, Trent and the South: ex-Midland Erewash Valley main line. In spite of being a Class C, the train is on the Goods line. The locomotive is Stanier 5MT ('Black Five') 4-6-0 No. 44806. Built in 7/44, it lasted to the End of Steam in 8/68 and was preserved straight away. It has been active on several Heritage Railways, being named 'Magpie' by the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway and later - in memory of her owner - 'Kenneth Aldcroft', by the Llangollen Railway, on which it now resides.
