25265 & 25051 Church Lawford 2 June 1984

25265 & 25051 pass Church Lawford on Saturday 2 June 1984 with an eastbound freightliner. I must apologise for the poor framing of this picture, both the unacceptable overhead viewpoint, with the wires obstructing the view, and the fact that I seemed to have pressed the shutter slightly too late! However, it was a grab shot, as the train was approaching as I arrived at the bridge. This is the only time I saw a pair of 'Rats' working a freightliner, and judging by the scarcity of published pictures, with the exception of single locos on the Holyhead and Beeston workings, 25s were not particularly common on freightliners.
