166206 Earlswood 9 August 1997

166206 is deep in third rail territory here, as it works the 1O62 08:34 Reading to Gatwick Airport Thames Trains service past Earlswood on 9 August 1997. In the background is the junction for the 'Quarry Line', built in 1899 by the LB&SCR to avoid Redhill, and its consequent disputes with the SE&CR.
