It looks a bit like Barrow Hill to me. Is that 60800 Green Arrow on the right?

Hi Peter,
I was on the verge of agreeing that it looked like Barrow Hill but something nagged me, not the wife, and I traced picture #11343 taken at Doncaster in 2003. The roofline of the building just left of centre and the lighting pylon were the real give aways. It could have been an earlier date but what a coincidence it would be to put them in the same place.

Green Arrow it is- can just see the nameplate on the smokebox.

OK, John, mine was a wild guess, having only ever been to Barrow Hill once, and never having been to the railway area in Doncaster, so you are right! At least I correctly identified Green Arrow, from a 50-year-old memory!
