158766 & 158760 Althorpe 23 May 2001

A very luck passing shot at Althorpe on 23 May 2001, which would not have been remotely possible if either or both of the Northern Spirit trains were running to time. 158776 heads westwards with the 18:19 Cleethorpes to Manchester Airport (20 minutes late), while 158760 heads in the opposite direction with the 16:42 Manchester Airport to Cleethorpes (8 minutes late). Note the advert in the background for Jungle.com, a defunct online technology retailer, once a rival for Amazon.
