3498 Shakespeare Tunnel 11 May 1996

Class 423 4-VEP 3498 emerges from Shakespeare Tunnel on 11 May 1996 with the 08:55 Charing Cross to Ramsgate Network SouthEast service. The photo is taken from the footbridge that spans the far end of Dover Town Yard, which explains the overgrown siding to the left of the running lines. The steep footpath leads down from the road at the top of the cliff and allows access to the beach, fortunately providing an excellent photographic vantage point.
