1010 & D1041 Stogumber 1 October 1995

In superb crisp late afternoon autumnal light, 1010 Western Campaigner & D1041 Western Prince accelerate away from Stogumber on the West Somerset Railway with the 15:05 Minehead to Bishops Lydeard service on 1 October 1995, during the line's Diesel Gala. I was hoping the train wouldn't be late, as the sun was only just glancing across the front of the loco, and even a few minutes delay would have meant losing the light on the front, to say nothing of the lengthening shadows from the lineside bushes! Note the vintage gradient post on the right.
