Sheffield train crossing the Derwent, 1973
A Peak locomotive draws its train of blue-and-grey coaches out of Derby Midland on an overcast February day. I wasn't much interested in this train as I was waiting for something much more exciting: SK3635 : 'Flying Scotsman' approaching Derby, 1973. The view here changed with the building of the elevated Pride Parkway. This is a scan of a small, low-quality Instamatic shot.

SK3635 : Pride Parkway and the Derwent railway bridge shows the same location in 2014.
