1001 Dainton 11 August 1999

1001 merges with the greenery as it passes Dainton on 11 August 1999 with the Hastings Diesels Ltd 1Z98 Buckfastleigh to Hastings 'Eclipse DEMU' railtour. This was the return working of one of a large number of special trains taking people to the West Country to view the total eclipse of the sun (and very impressive it was too!).
