Retford station, East Coast main line, around 1958. A Gresley ‘K3′ class 2-6-0 chugs slowly through the up platform line with a mineral train. This happened several times a day, but the scene has vanished now. The line is electrified and the platform from which the view is taken has been demolished. There are no ‘K3′s any more!
