37116 & 37411 Droitwich (Impney Park) 23 June 1996

A welcome bonus at Droitwich on Sunday 23 June 1996. 37116 Sister Dora pilots 37411 on the 1V19 19:00 Birmingham New Street to Cardiff Central service. 37411 was the regular loco on this working at the time, and indeed had worked up with the 1M15 16:10 Cardiff to Birmingham unaided just a few hours earlier. 37116 was added as a positioning move, in order to avoid a light engine movement. This picture is taken from a bridge that crosses the Stoke Works Junction to Droitwich line, near Impney Park, on the outskirts of Droitwich.
