40145 Manea 23 January 2005

40145 is pictured crossing Cow Common, just after passing through Manea station, with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 11:35 York to Kings Cross 'Silver Jubilee' railtour on Sunday 23 January 2005 (not Saturday, as this picture was captioned in Rail magazine!). In contrast to Saturday's picture of the same railtour, this location was blessed with full sun. It is not very often I do a 230 mile round trip to photograph the same railtour two days running, with the final locations only being a few miles apart! This location has the added advantage on a winter's day with a strong wind in that it could be taken from the car window while parked near the level crossing!
