47195 Stoke Orchard 13 March 1982

A typical burst of Sulzer clag, as 47195 passes Stoke Orchard on 13 March 1982 with the 1V89 12:23 Manchester Piccadilly to Paignton service. This used to be a favourite location for watching trains go by (with locals, as well as photographers), but sadly this is no longer possible, due to two things that hardly existed in 1982 - palisade fencing, and uncontrolled lineside vegetation!
