Looking east towards Derby from the Bromford Bridge at the racecourse station in September 1962. This was an extremely busy section of line with a constant flow of freight traffic. Heading east is a local working on the up slow line, headed by an ex-LMS 4F 0-6-0 locomotive running tender-first. This view was completely altered by the construction of the M6 Motorway and the A47 Spine Road.
