I found this photo on flickr

The fine and informative aerial picture was taken by Surrey Flying Services in 1928.

The Ironworks railway was connected to the Midland Railway's Erewash Valley line at its Bennerley Junction . Note the albeit shadowy outline of the Bennerley Viaduct Bridge at the top right corner of the picture.
