1001 Castle Bar Park 20 April 2002

1001 passes slowly through Castle Bar Park with the Branch Line Society 'Western Essex Express' railtour on 20 April 2002. At this point it was running 30 minutes late as the 1Z67 11:50 Royal Oak Headshunt to Chelmsford. This mammoth tour started from Hastings at 06:07 and visited numerous sections of rare track around the London and Essex areas before finally arriving back at Hastings at 23:58! It managed to regain all of its lost time, despite being hampered here by being directly behind the 13:32 Greenford to Paddington train.
