(1) Originally uploaded as having been organised by Flying Scotsman Services. At Derby about half of the passengers left the train to join an excursion to the Midland Railway Centre at Butterley c/o a fleet of six chartered National Express coaches. The remaining passengers, plus a further half a train load of 'local' passengers (rounded up and pre-booked for us by the Derby Railway Club) boarded to re-fill the train for its onward journey to Sheffield via the Erewash Valley, returning to Derby via Clay Cross, hauled by 44932.
