Sunrise Sunset UK Dvd: Part 7, A Day at Stenson Junction
Sunrise Sunset UK Volume 7 – A Day at Stenson Junction
The seventh programme in the Sunrise Sunset UK series spends a day at Stenson Junction.
Sunrise Sunset UK spends a full day at a busy and popular location, recording a typical day of passenger and freight trains.
Filmed on a fine day in July 2017, DB Cargo, Freightliner, Colas Rail Freight, GBRf and DRS freight trains make up the bulk of the programme.
With more than thirty-five freight trains during a typical twenty-four hour period, many coming on and off the freight-only branch.
Plus regular Class 153, 170, 220 and 221 DMUs plus the odd HST, this is a popular railway location.
Stenson Junction is located on the Derby – Birmingham line, five miles south of Derby itself.
Here, the freight-only branch from the Toton/Nottingham direction, at Sheet Stores Junction, joins the mainline and a short distance later comes North Stafford Junction, where the line to Stoke and Crewe diverges.
