40091 Great Hale 11 August 1984

The driver of 40091 phones the signalman after being held at signals at Great Hale on 11 August 1984, whilst working the 1E67 08:15 Manchester Piccadilly to Skegness. It's a pity he stopped so far back from the signal, as it leads to a rather unbalanced composition. It is equally unfortunate that when the train moved off, a small cloud decided to pass in front of the sun at the crucial moment! However, it is still an interesting record of the 40's trip to the seaside, in what would be their final year on such duties.
