37048 Andover 24 June 1995

On 24 June 1995, 37048 propels the stock of the Pathfinder Tours 1Z37 08:56 Bristol Temple Meads to Marchwood 'Logistician' railtour from the down line into the up platform at Andover, prior to working down the Ludgershall Branch (on the left) to visit the Army Depot. As can be seen by the heaving platform, all passengers were required to detrain while this shunt manoeuvre was being performed. 37371 waits to attach the rear of the train. The main attraction of this tour was visiting two Army Depots in one day (Ludgershall and Marchwood). Although it looks like 37048 has had some degree of cleaning for this tour (note the painted cab steps) it was in fact a replacement for the original tour locomotive (37098), which had failed at Didcot.
