A class 56 with a coal train about to pass through the remains of Shirebrook West station on a hazy May morning in 1980. The train is passing the modern diesel locomotive shed (code 41J) opened in 1965 as part of the BR Modernisation Plan to handle the large volumes of coal traffic in this part of the York, Notts, Derby Coalfield.
