40086 & 40118 Ashchurch 14 November 1984

40086 & 40118 pass Ashchurch in miserable light on 24 November 1984 with the Hertfordshire Railtours 1Z56 07:25 Euston to Meldon Quarry 'Devon Quarryman' railtour. This doesn't seem an obvious route from London to the West Country, but it had travelled via the West Coast Mainline to Birmingham (behind 81009), picking up at Watford, Bletchley, Rugby and Coventry.
