20095 & 20227 Beeston 11 September 1990

An interesting (and slightly overpowered!) DMU substitution pictured at Beeston on 11 September 1990. Problems with the introduction of Sprinter units in the early 1990s occasionally resulted in loco hauled substitutions, often with Class 47s, but on this occasion something much more unusual. 20095 & 20227 work the 09:16 Birmingham New Street to Lincoln service. The woman walking her dog obviously doesn't appreciate the rarity of the traction!
