Looking NE from Goodsmoor Road bridge at SUNNY HILL on the southern outskirts of Derby. The large works in the left background was the Qualcast lawnmower factory (now demolished), while Sinfin Ordnance Depot is on the right. 4472 on ?

It has just occurred to me that 4472 is probably working the Retford to Tyseley (via Sheffield and Derby - dep Derby 11.8am) special which ran on 29 September 1968. This took part in the "Festival of Steam" at Tyseley with, I believe, a run to Leamington and back as part of this.

4472 could well be on the working that Mark mentions. I took shots of it at Derby; it had the double tenders and the sun was shining.
