159008 & 3489 Potbridge 30 December 1994

Diesel passes electric in the rain at Potbridge on 30 December 1994. 159008 with an unidentified classmate head west with the 09:35 Gillingham Network SouthEast service, while Class 423 4-VEP 3489 brings up the rear of the 10:05 Basingstoke to Waterloo train. With the frequency of trains on this stretch of line this kind of passing shot is fairly easy to obtain, although in this case the timing is spot on. However, what makes this noteworthy is that 3489 is incorrectly showing a white light on the rear of the train, almost giving the impression, at first sight, that both trains are travelling in the same direction!
